Gray Television’s Fox affiliate WVUE-TV New Orleans, together with all the Gray-owned stations in Louisiana, began airing on April 5 a series of at-home concerts from Louisiana-based musicians. The concerts are a step to keep viewers entertained while reminding them of the importance of staying at home. The artists will also have an opportunity to promote charitable causes during the broadcast.

“We’re excited to launch this innovative concert series to lift the spirits of so many around the state,” said Ronna Corrente, WVUE’s general manager. “In addition to sharing their talents with Louisianans, these great artists will use their voices and air-time to promote different charitable causes close to their hearts, and viewers will be able to connect with these artists’ social pages to also support the causes of their choice.”
