Video: A day in the life of a WWNO producer

NolaVie content partner WWNO-FM radio, the local NPR affiliate, is listener-supported -- which means that support from the 1.5 million people in the station's 11-parish audience is its number one means of support.

That resonates during WWNO's spring membership drive, which is in full swing this week. Already, hundreds of supporters have contributed to the station, where managers say they already have been struck by the high number of new and returning members and the enthusiastic comments coming in online and by phone.

Recently, UNO documentary film student Kathryn Hanzalik interviewed WWNO producer Thomas Walsh about the history of public radio in New Orleans, why it matters, and what a day in the life of a producer is like. Watch, enjoy, and if you want to join the party, click here.

 

The Film and Theatre Department of UNO and NolaVie present this series of short films produced by the students in Laszlo Fulop's documentary class. Read Renee Peck's column about the program here.
