Set Your Dials: Introducing Delta Dispatches Weekly Radio Show & Podcast

By Jacques P. Hebert, Communications Director, Restore the Mississippi River Delta Coalition, National Audubon Society

What happens when a Theriot and an Hebert walk into a radio station? You’re about to find out! Starting today, Thursday March 2, Restore or Retreat Executive Director Simone Theriot Maloz and I will be co-hosting a weekly radio show, “Delta Dispatches,” to discuss Louisiana’s coast, its people, wildlife and jobs, and why restoring it matters.

As the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) passed the 2017 Coastal Master Plan earlier this year, the fight to restore Louisiana’s coast continues. To keep you engaged and informed, we will bring you discussions on important aspects of coastal restoration, the latest coastal news and events, interviews with relevant experts, business and community leaders, and more.
