Entercom’s News-Talker WWL-A/FM New Orleans announced iconic news anchor Angela Hill will join the WWL radio lineup effective 9/30. Hill will take over the 1pm to 4pm time slot. “It doesn’t get any bigger than this,” says Chris Claus, Vice President and General Manager of Entercom New Orleans. “Not only is Angela a household name, she’s one of the most respected, popular and beloved personalities in New Orleans and the Gulf South.”
Hill, who retired from WWL-TV earlier this year said, “I am sure people are asking, ‘what happened to retirement?’ I always said I was looking for the next chapter of my life. This is a natural fit, it’s in the city I love and talking with the people I love. I’ll have the opportunity to get to know my community better, and they’ll get to know me better,” said Hill.
“Radio allows you to connect with and engage people on a more personal level. When you add the power and reach of WWL radio, we can do great things. My show will be engaging, fun and attract big time guests that will keep the Deep South talking. The sky’s the limit.”
Said WWL Operations & Program Director, Diane Newman: “For decades, Angela Hill has been friend, family, community leader. Now she gets to expand and connect to her fans, guests and community in an intimate way. She’s a trusted journalist, an amazing interviewer and a great listener. Garland and Angela back to back is a powerful combination. Their perspectives are different…the ultimate skeptic followed by the ultimate optimist. It’s going to be a great ride.”
