The Listening Post — a partnership between Internews and WWNO focused on starting conversations about topics important to New Orleanians, especially in communities often ignored by the media — was featured in a story by The Chronicle of Philanthropy.

"It’s a way to cover news that isn’t news, but is actually the most important news," says Eve Troeh, a fellow co-founder and the news director at WWNO. "It’s something that transcends a daily news peg and allows us to have conversations."
