World Footprints returns to New Orleans for our signature broadcast from Jackson Square during  French Quarter Festival! During this hour we’ll continue sharing “must see” and “must do” attractions.  This hour you’ll meet John Hankins from the New Orleans African American Museum.and you’ll meet Errol LaBorde, editor of New Orleans Magazine. 

Two dear friends from the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau will join us—Communications Director Kelly Schulz and President Stephen Perry aka "Mr. New Orleans".  In addition to being the President/CEO of the New Orleans CVB, Stephen is also  an Obama appointee to the U.S. Travel & Tourism Advisory Board. 

Then our most special guests—our moms Nancy Peterson (Tonya’s mom) and Minnie Johnson (Ian’s mom) will join us to discuss why they love traveling to New Orleans with us year after year.  Our moms have been adopted by the New Orleans family and they’re collectively referred to as “The Moms”.  Their presence is sought every year and they have come to adopt New Orleans as their second home.  Also, our friend and remote engineer Ed Cole is another staple figure in our broadcasts and Ed will share his thoughts and feelings on New Orleans.
