The New Orleans Advocate
What it does: More local news in a better format
The Advocate has an easier app to navigate than NOLA.com’s mobile platform, and, between the two of them (and the two below), you’ll get most of the big headlines as they’re happening.
What it does: Live-stream public radio
The official app for NOLA’s NPR affiliate radio station, you can stream everything from “All Things New Orleans” to “Louisiana Eats!" with Poppy Tooker. Plus, you’ll get NPR news, national stories, and music varying from jazz to classical.
WWL Radio LIVE
What it does: Radio breaking news, without the pain of, you know, finding a radio
Channel 4 in NOLA and on the dial at 870am, this app is a great one for quick updates on weather, sports, breaking news, and other news, should you have your phone and not be in close proximity to a radio.
