Louisiana: The State We’re In, Louisiana's only statewide news magazine and one of the longest running television programs in the nation, is in its 43rd season on the air.

The program airs Fridays at 7PM and Sundays at 4:30PM on the six-station LPB network that includes stations in Alexandria, Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Lake Charles, Monroe and Shreveport. It also airs on LPB’s sister station WLAE-TV32 in New Orleans on Fridays at 7PM.

This award-winning show combines in-depth coverage about the important issues in the state along with expert analysis of those issues. This includes continuing coverage of stories like the lasting effect of the BP oil spill on Louisiana’s coastline, the devastating floods of 2016, or the continuing coverage of healthcare, education and state budget issues.

Since its inception in 1976, “Louisiana: The State We’re In” has been a leader in coverage of the Louisiana Legislature. Its goal has always been to explain how legislation will affect the lives of the people of the state. That coverage expands during the legislative session to include daily updates and a wrap up of the week’s events on the Friday broadcast that features live interviews with lawmakers and experts on legislation.

The program also features stories on the art, culture and the people and places that make Louisiana so unique.
