News Director Eve Troeh welcomed our newest program to the air with an interview with Tim Franks, the host of BBC Newshour, airing weekdays at 2 p.m.

Eve Troeh: Tell us a little bit about the production day for Newshour; when we hear you here at 2 p.m. it’s going to be much later obviously in London. When does the day start for you and how does it begin?

WWNO's Schedule Has Changed

Aug 3, 2014

At WWNO we're constantly engaged in a conversation with you — your suggestions, criticisms, ideas and desires (and donations!) are the critical components in making New Orleans Public Radio a success. We evaluate every listener comment and, periodically, make changes to our schedule to reflect our community's evolving priorities.

We're also in constant conversation with our local and national content partners, and have to adjust along with their decisions.

Krista Tippett, creator and host of the public radio show “On Being,” will be honored Monday with the 2013 National Humanities Medal. Tippett will receive the award from President Obama at a White House ceremony, along with nine other Americans whose work has broadened the nation’s cultural understanding and engagement with the humanities.

"On Being" airs Sundays at 10 a.m. on WWNO.

The Moth was back for July, with a monthly StorySLAM at Café Istanbul. The theme for this evening was "Pride".

StorySlams are an opportunity for anyone to submit their name, tell a story, and receive feedback from the audience in a non-confrontational environment. The Moth is storytelling, not standup, and participants are of of all ages and backgrounds, says producer Mallory Falk (who is also a freelance producer and reporter for WWNO).
