Information about WWL 870 AM's 2010 NFL Draft Fest

The link below provides some information about WWL 8780 AM's 2010 Draft Fest event, which will be held at the Esplanade Mall in Kenner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Since Hurricane Katrina, the local NFL draft event had been held in the soccer field across from the New Orleans Saints training facility on Airline Drive when it was a one-day Saturday afternoon event.

However, the NFL's decision to make more money from the draft by holding it during primetime and the poor lighting at the previous site made moving the local gathering to an indoor venue a necessity.

Though the draft does not start until 6:30 PM on Thursday, the local event starts with WWL's live Sportstalk broadcast from the Esplanade Mall in Kenner at 4:00 PM.
