Louisiana: The State We're In

Tariff Trade-off, 'Tis The Season For Giving, HIV & AIDS Cases | 12/06/19 | Louisiana: The State We're In

HIV & AIDS Cases

- Baton Rouge and New Orleans have long had some of the highest per capita HIV or AIDS cases in America. But the Capital City fell from the top spot to tenth with the help of some programs introduced in the past two years. Now, the U.S. Department of Health is launching a program it believes can end the epidemic and remove the cost barrier so people can have increased access to PrEP medications nationwide. Dr. Brent Giroir , Assistant Secretary for the Department of Health explains the plan to Andre’ Moreau.

'Tis The Season For Giving

It’s at holiday time that we really see the work of national charities like The Salvation Army kick into high gear to help those in need. Natasha William talks with Major Donald Tekautz of the Baton Rouge area Salvation Army about how the organization motivates people and organizations to support their efforts, plus he discusses how the Salvation Army is changing with the times to remain relevant in their outreach.

Tariff Trade-off

Louisiana’s farmers have collected more than $180 million from President Donald Trump’s multi-billion-dollar bailout package for farmers hurt by America’s trade war with China. West Baton Rouge and Pointe Coupee farmer Donald Schexnayder tells Andre’ Moreau even though it’s been a blow to farmers, he believes the President is making essential inroads that will payoff in the long run.


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.
