WWNO's Schedule Has Changed

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.

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).
