Topic: Disaster Relief and Recovery

TEGNA’s CBS affiliate WWL-TV New Orleans helped raise $239,000 for the United Way following a February 24 tornado. WWL created a PSA on how to donate, which aired in almost all newscasts for two weeks. “Our neighbors have always supported us, and we in turn want to make sure we’re there for them,” said WWL General Manager Todd Smith. “It’s a promise we make every day, and it’s a part of what makes South Louisiana feel like a family.”
