Starting Monday, July 23, New Orleans listeners will be able to hear NPR's On Point weekday mornings from 9 - 11 a.m. on 89.9 WWNO. On Point is one of the best, most compelling news and information programs on radio, with its daily two-hour blend of expert guests and listener calls conducted with great skill, intelligence and insight by host Tom Ashbrook.
One of the outstanding programs coming to the 89.9 WWNO lineup on July 23rd is the mid-day news magazine Here and Now — hosted by Hall-of-Fame Boston broadcast journalist Robin Young. Young talked with WWNO's Fred Kasten about her career, and Here and Now.

Thompkins is a New Orleans native who grew up in the Pontchartrain Park neighborhood with a deep love of music.
