Listen to our Destination Spotlight on New Orleans

Mark Romig, CMO
New Orleans & Company

New Orleans is a city that conjures up many thoughts, opinions and emotions — and it’s one of America’s most unique destinations that isn’t duplicated elsewhere.  Mardi Gras and Bourbon Street (which was not named for the liquor) are two common things associated with the city, but we appreciate its history, its food, its music, its people, its festivals, its dialects, its architecture and its many engaging neighborhoods.  The Crescent City is located in a State admitted to the Union back in 1812, and it’s an inviting place for weekend getaways, longer vacations as well as business travel and conventions.  The national media isn’t always kind to “NOLA” in its portrayals, but the facts are it’s home to the most historic districts of any U.S. city, St. Louis Cathedral (located in the French Quarters Jackson Square) is the oldest continually operating cathedral in the U.S. and the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway is the longest continuous bridge in the world — just to name a few of the one-of-a-kind things you’ll find there.  If you haven’t been to New Orleans — you need to go and experience its hospitality, and if it’s been a while since your last visit — there’s a lot of new development awaiting your return.

During our live broadcast of America’s #1 Travel Radio Show on 11 March 2023, we reconnected with New Orleans native and the Voice of New Orleans Saints during home games at the Caesars Superdome Mark Romig to discuss his city.  Mark previously connected with us back in 2017 when he was CEO of New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation, but now he’s the CMO of New Orleans & Company.  To hear the full interview that ran across our national network of now 510+ weekly affiliates airing RMWorldTravel with Robert & Mary Carey and Rudy Maxa, simply click on the play arrow below …
