A New Era in New Orleans Radio Begins Today



3WL 1350AM Launches
Sports, Food and Fun – A Station for the Passions of New Orleans

Today, Entercom New Orleans formally launches 3WL 1350.  3WL, an extension of the Gulf South POWERhouse, WWL AM/FM, builds on the success of this legendary New Orleans station by offering a “branch” focused on the passions of New Orleans.  3WL goes live on 1350am and 105.3 WWL HD2 Monday, October 14th at 6am.

“3WL 1350 celebrates the three greatest passions of New Orleans--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.  “In the three weeks since we announced 3WL the response has been overwhelming.  3WL is perfectly set up to succeed and deliver real results for our advertisers.”

Award-winning WWL Operations & Program Director, Diane Newman, who will oversee 3WL, commented on the launch, “Today is the culmination of a lot of hard work and planning.  Our lineup from top to bottom is as good as any in the country. With sports in the morning, food at lunch, and a larger-than-life personality, Spud McConnell, in the afternoon, 3WL launches with tremendous strength, proven talent, and unquestioned passion.”
3WL’s lineup features:

6 to 9am –“Double Coverage” 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.   It’s hyper local covering Saints, LSU, Pelicans & more!

9am to Noon – The Power of NBC Sports with Erik 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.

3 to 6pm – “Talk Gumbo” with SPUD.  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.

6pm to 6am – NBC Sports Radio (featuring Jon Stashower 6-9pm & more!)

When 3WL is not live and local, the backdrop will be NBC Sports Radio.
