WYES Updates Programming to Include Jazz Fest-Inspired Specials

NEW ORLEANS — There are many festivals around New Orleans and all over the world being cancelled, but none will be missed more than this month’s New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. In honor of one of the city’s premier events, WYES has updated its programming on Saturday, April 25th — what would have been the Fest’s first Saturday — to bring viewers a day of Jazz Fest inspired specials celebrating the food, music and culture of New Orleans and Louisiana. Though we know it’s not the same, we hope the gesture will make the day a little brighter for WYES viewers.

On Saturday, April 25th viewers can enjoy a front row seat of Jazz Fest inspired programming all day long.
