World Footprints Radio officially launched its new brand during a special 2-hour broadcast in New Orleans during French Quarter Festival 2010. During this first hour, we are happy to reintroduce you to Mary Beth Romig, VP of the French Quarter Festival and a member of the Landrieu transition team. Then, Who Dat!! You’ll meet the Voice of the New Orleans Saints: broadcast legend Jerry Romig. There’s a lot of new developments in the Crescent City and Kelly Schultz from the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau will give us the inside scoop. Finally, you’ll hear from a long-time resident (and long-lost cousin of Tonya’s) about the hidden treasures around the City and Kacey Hill from The National WWII Museum stops by to talk about the new attractions at the museum.

The National WWII Museum is the top-rated tourist destination in New Orleans. The visitors can experience World War II­, from Home Front efforts to the combat encounters of the American soldier abroad. The D-Day Museum is inspiring and educational. The WWII Museum offers immersive exhibits, a 4D cinematic journey, soaring aircraft, personal histories and more!
