Today Entercom New Orleans announced the launch of a new radio station, 3WL 1350. This AM station is an extension of the Gulf South POWERhouse, WWL AM/FM. 3WL builds on the success of this New Orleans legendary station by offering a “branch” focused on the passions of New Orleans. 3WL will go live Monday, October 14th.
“3WL 1350 celebrates the three greatest passions of New Orleanians…sports, food and fun! Think of 3WL as a radio station as tasty as gumbo, as fun as Mardi Gras and as passionate as Saints fans on Sundays,” said Chris Claus, Vice President and General Manager of Entercom New Orleans. “3WL will build on the tremendous success of WWL, but have a focus all its own. This is an exciting time for Entercom New Orleans and our clients. There is no city like New Orleans in America and there will be no station like 3WL in New Orleans.”
Award winning WWL Operations & Program Director, Diane Newman, who will oversee 3WL, commented on the launch, “From 6am to 6pm 3WL 1350 has a lineup that New Orleans not only knows but connects with. With sports in the morning, food at lunch and larger than life personality, Spud McConnell, in the afternoon, 3WL launches with tremendous strength, proven talent, and unquestioned passion.”
3WL’s lineup will launch Monday, October 14th and feature:
6am to 9am – Morning Drive with T-Bob Hebert and Kristian Garic. T-Bob, former LSU lineman and son of iconic Saints QB Bobby Hebert, joins Saints sideline reporter and WWL sportscaster Kristian Garic to create NOLA’s newest and best morning sports show.
9am to Noon – The Power of NBC Sports with Erick Kuselias.
Noon to 3pm – “The Food Show” with Tom Fitzmorris. Now in its 25th year “The Food Show” with Tom Fitzmorris taps into the hot New Orleans food scene and a culture wrapped around the Crescent City’s love of food—eating out or dining in. It’s a platform unlike any other in local media.
3pm to 6pm – The Lighter Side of The Spud Show. WWL mainstay John Spud McConnell brings his irreverent take on life, politics and today’s events to 3WL 1350 on a new edition of The Spud Show. Spud will celebrate our city’s lighter side and what makes the Crescent City so special!
6pm to 6am – NBC Sports Radio
When 3WL is not live and local, the backdrop will be NBC Sports Radio.
