About

New Orleans Public Radio is a member-supported news and cultural organization dedicated to telling Southeast Louisiana’s stories to the world and bringing the world to Southeast Louisiana.

Serving a region with stark disparities, we’re committed to deep reporting on public health, the environment, education and politics — and to racial and economic inequities across the board. We give listeners and readers the information they need to understand their community and be better members of it. That means we illuminate power structures, contextualize systemic issues, and start conversations. It also means we have fun, play good music and tell good stories.

New Orleans Public Radio is driven by a love for the one-of-a-kind city we call home. Like you, our neighbors, we are curious, creative, concerned and connected. Southeast Louisiana’s story is our story, too, and we’re invested in getting it right.

New Orleans Public Radio is an NPR member station and is licensed to and operated by the University of New Orleans.
