WWOZ is moving out of its location near the French Market, the radio station announced on Saturday.
The community radio station will hold its last membership drive after 18 years of broadcasting from hits current headquarters in the 1000 block of North Peters Street location.
WWOZ cited renovations to the building due to damage from Hurricane Ida in 2021 as the reason for the move. A new location has not yet been announced.
“We are very grateful to the French Market and the city of New Orleans for providing WWOZ our home for the last 18 years and for their help during the transition,” WWOZ said. “Stay tuned for updates on our new home! We are still working out the final details and will have an exciting special announcement about that soon. Until then, please support the station in our final membership drive here. We’d love to leave on a high note, breaking all previous membership drive records! And, of course, your donations will help us during this vitally important time for our beloved WWOZ! Thank you! Support WWOZ!”
The fall membership drive runs from Sept. 21-29. For more information, visit wwoz.org.
