Louisiana: The State We're In

Louisiana’s only statewide newsmagazine, Louisiana: The State We’re In, began its 42nd year on Louisiana Public Broadcasting on Friday, September 14th at 7:00PM. The program airs every Friday at 7PM on LPB and WLAE-TV32 in New Orleans. It encores on Sundays at 4:30PM on LPB’s six-channel network and can be viewed online at lpb.org/swi and on the LPB app.

Managing editor and host André Moreau takes viewers around the state as he reports on the stories that impact Louisiana. From coverage of the legislature, to education, healthcare and the economy, plus exclusive features on the people, places and culture that makes us unique.

The program began in 1976 with current LPB President/CEO Beth Courtney anchoring and producing the show. It is one of the longest-running television shows in the nation.
