Did you know that every public radio program has a "clock?" Broadcast clocks are set templates that stations like ours use to track the timing of a show's stories and interviews, newscasts and underwriting credits each day.

Learn more about broadcast clocks in this great 99% Invisible podcast.

NPR's Michele Norris says Hurricane Katrina was a line of demarcation for her. Reporting from New Orleans and the Gulf Coast after the storm and floods, she found herself compelled to work with emotion in her journalism in a new way.

90.5 KTLN, WWNO's translator station serving the Houma/Thibodaux region, is temporarily off the air.

Our engineers are working to restore service. Robert Carroll, our chief engineer, says the shutdown was due to "high reflected power" at the transmitter site — which can be caused by many things, including rain and lightning as that experienced during the Monday night storms.
