WWNO has served Greater New Orleans, Louisiana and the world since 1972 from offices and studio on the University of New Orleans beside Lake Pontchartrain. Innumerable pieces of journalism and hours of music WWNO has broadcast over five decades. General Manager Paul Masssen wrote this apprecaition of volunteers at the Station.
'The role of volunteers at WWNO is vital to our ability to serve the New Orleans community. From on-air to helping at events and fundraisers, the dedication and talent our volunteers provide is essential and inspiring. Our stations are a community of listeners, a community that participates with us and makes it better for all to enjoy and use. New Orleans is fortunate to have such a vibrant group of community/public radio stations many represented here today - a collective group that can rival any city.
Thank you for having this day to recognize those who make it happen everyday!'
