Thanks to all our New Orleans-area viewers (and Twitter followers) for making 2010 a great year. From the Saints Super Bowl championship to the Oil Spill, WDSU has been there. And, like the promo says, we’ll be there in 2011, too! I thank you for being there as well. Here’s to a great 2011.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Easter!
