WWL And Gambit Team Up On Best of New Orleans
Belo’s CBS affiliate WWL New Orleans (DMA 51) and Gambit Communications Inc. have formed a partnership that will raise the weekly publication’s “Best of New Orleans” survey to a new level. For years, thousands of New Orleanians have gone to Gambit’s website and voted for everything from their favorite po-boy place to the city’s best dry cleaner. Now, thanks to this new partnership, the “Best of New Orleans” survey will also be showcased on the station and its WWLTV.com.
On Aug. 27, WWL will also air Best of New Orleans. This special will highlight the winners of the survey and give viewers exclusive access to some survey results.
“The Best of New Orleans is the ultimate insider’s guide to what’s happening around the city”, said WWL’s Director of Digital Media Jeff Burrell. “People around the country use it to find the best shows, food and hidden gems the Crescent City has to offer.”
In addition to combining efforts on the Best of New Orleans, WWL Meteorologist Derek Kevra will provide weekend weather updates on Gambit’s website, and Gambit will supply WWLTV.com with the latest entertainment news, including a schedule of upcoming events happening in and around the area.
