To increase local news reporting in southeast Louisiana, the Greater New Orleans Foundation will help expand the city’s NPR affiliate, WWNO.
Previously devoted almost exclusively to classical music, the station will build a news service to cover issues like education reform, arts and culture. WWNO will add a reporting staff and will partner with two local online news organizations, one of which – The Lens – is a Knight Community Information Challenge winner.
