About Remarkable Women

Remarkable Women is part of a nationwide Nexstar Media initiative to honor the influence that women have had on public policy, social progress, and the quality of life. WGNO and NOLA38 will celebrate local women who inspire, lead and forge the way for other women. It’s not just about one day or one month — it’s about what they do, day in and day out.

In March, we’ll highlight four local women who will be considered for Nexstar’s nationwide 2023 Woman of the Year Award. One local winner will be selected to earn a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Los Angeles. Look for their stories during Good Morning New Orleans (5-7 AM) and WGNO News at 11 AM, 6 PM, and 10 PM.
