A new fund in the Greater New Orleans Foundation will honor the memory of pioneer NPR news reporter and Louisiana native, Cokie Roberts, and will build a permanent funding source for radio station WWNO’s local news reporting. The “Cokie Roberts Fund for WWNO Local Journalism” was created with a leadership gift from Cokie Roberts’ family. WWNO aims to raise $1 million in additional donations for the Fund to augment the listener contributions and other revenues that will continue to be vital for the station’s service to south Louisiana.
