In conjunction with today’s expansion of its radio news programs, WWNO is announcing the creation of a community news-gathering collaboration that will increase local news coverage on both broadcast and digital platforms. The news operation will introduce content from a trio of nonprofit news and information partners, bringing together experienced local journalists at a critical point in the renewal of our city, region and community.
Starting Monday, July 23, New Orleans NPR outlet WWNO FM-89.9 will be shifting morning and afternoon classical blocks to HD channels, and airing more local and national news-and-information programming.
