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."

Culture Collision 6 — the unique happy-hour hosted by WWNO — kicked off the 2014-15 cultural season with a brand-new venue: The National WWII Museum’s US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center on Wednesday, August 27.

This installment of the annual event brought together more than 60 of New Orleans’ nonprofit visual and performing arts organizations for a one-night-only event designed to encourage participation in the New Orleans art scene. Attendees scoped out upcoming performances, took advantage of exclusive ticket promotions and met like-minded arts lovers.

What makes you turn to 89.9? We want to know. AND we want you to share that reason in a tweet... in the form of a tag-line or a photo. Too hard? Not at all!

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.
