WWNO Announces New Coastal Reporting Team

Jun 13, 2014
Janet Wilson / WWNO

WWNO — New Orleans Public Radio launches its “Coastal Desk” today — a local reporting team devoted to covering news and issues related to Louisiana’s rapidly eroding coastline. Southeast Louisiana — WWNO’s service area, centered on New Orleans — is vanishing under the waves faster than any coastal landscape in the world. Every hour Louisiana loses wetlands equivalent in size to a football field. Some coastal communities have already been erased from maps.

Prepare a five-minute STORY about a father. A rolling stone or a rock, chronically absent or overbearingly present. Shotgun weddings, the Dad-Daughter Dance, father-son bonding. Patriarchs and father-figures. Becoming a father or finding one.

Come join us for “Father", hosted by Eve Troeh, on Tuesday, June 10, 2014.

Fat Happy Media

Kai Ryssdal, the Host and Senior Editor of Marketplace — the national business show airing weekdays at 6 p.m. on WWNO — flew in for just one day for a special event at Le Petit Théâtre on May 29.

After a quick meet-and-greet with some of the station’s major donors, Kai sat down with WWNO News Director Eve Troeh for an interview in front of a packed house, and then answered questions from the audience.

KTLN Update

Robert Carroll / WWNO

90.5 KTLN-FM has been experiencing technical difficulties since we relocated our transmitter to a new broadcast tower.

This past weekend our engineer Robert Carroll discovered evidence of a family of mice in the transmitter's remote control equipment.

It will take several days to replace and repair the damaged electronics, but we're confident KTLN is on a path to full service once again.

Please let us know your comments and concerns: comments@wwno.org

Dear WWNO Listeners:

NPR recently shared the news that the network will end production of Tell Me More on August 1, 2014. This was a decision that NPR made for strategic as well as budgetary reasons. WWNO was not involved with this decision.

NPR believes the issues and perspectives that Michel Martin and the Tell Me More show team have brought to public radio should be infused into every aspect of NPR's journalism.

Coincidence? I think not! Prepare a five-minute story about cosmic justice. Did a rude comment come back to bite you? Or have you unwittingly saved your own neck though an act of random kindness? Whether you’re fated for success or doomed for failure, what goes around comes around. Better tip your bartender!
