Co-managing Partner, Robert Steeg, is a new member of the WWNO Executive Council, the station’s Community Advisory Group, but he has been a fan of the station for long time. “I listen to WWNO every morning and learn something new everyday.”
Steeg Law is delighted to shine the community spotlight on WWNO. WWNO is the NPRmember station for New Orleans and the 13 parishes of southeast Louisiana, broadcasting on 89.9 FM — and on KTLN 90.5 FM in the Houma-Thibodaux area — as a public service of the University of New Orleans. The station serves southeast Louisiana and parts of southwest Mississippi by broadcasting news, information, classical music, jazz and other musical styles, intelligent entertainment, and unique local content.
While strong national and international news programs (such as Morning Edition, All Things Considered, BBC Newshour), are the backbone of public radio nationwide, WWNOproduces many local programs and features, such as Market Minutes, Where Y’Eat and All Things New Orleans, along with Inside the Arts and the GNO Info Minute.
WWNO Launches 24-hour Classical Music Station
The exciting news is that WWNO 89.9 FM has an unexpected opportunity to launch a 24-hour, all-classical radio station at 104.9 on the regular FM band in January 2017, extending convenient enjoyment of classical music to thousands more listeners in New Orleans and the eastbank and westbank suburbs. For the first time, most classical music lovers in metro New Orleans will be able to enjoy great music around the clock, on ordinary FM radios at home, in the car, or in the office.
The station will launch Classical 104.9 FM with WWNO2’s current schedule of classical selections, national programs, and Continuum, their locally produced early music series. As resources grow they plan to enhance the listening experience with new national programs, local hosting and commentary, and locally recorded programs highlighting performances by the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, the New Orleans Opera, and other New Orleans-area classical music organizations. They aim to create a distinctive schedule that their listeners will enjoy and that will help the New Orleans classical community to thrive.
