90.5 KTLN Is Temporarily Off The Air For Transmitter And Antenna Improvements

This is a special note if you listen to WWNO on 90.5 FM — KTLN in the Thibodaux and Houma area.

90.5 KTLN is temporarily off the air so we can make transmitter and antenna improvements.

The signal went off the air this past Saturday (Feb. 22) and may be off for up to two weeks, depending on weather conditions.

The owner of our KTLN tower site is putting up a new tower, and we are taking this opportunity to make technical improvements to the KTLN transmitter and antenna — enabling us to improve service in the Houma and Thibodaux region.

Photos From The Moth's February StorySLAM

Anyone can participate at The Moth! Storytellers each get five minutes to tell their tale, and the best stories are aired on the radio. John Menszer tells his story here.

The Moth — our monthly storytelling series at Café Instanbul — was back this week, featuring stories ranging from the sweet to the absurd. The theme was “Love Hurts” and if these stories are any indication, boy, does it!

Each month at The Moth volunteer storytellers each take five minutes to tell a true story, and some of the best (as voted by the audience) are aired on WWNO here in New Orleans, or maybe even nationally on The Moth Radio Hour.
