    Mon, 30 Nov 2015

    Jefferson Parish Sheriff NEWELL NORMAND! Can Governor-elect, John Bel Edwards, bridge the gap between the parties and get everybody to put Louisiana FIRST? The Louisiana Sheriffs’ Association endorsed Edwards. And, many say the endorsement by Normand, one of the most powerful Republicans in the state, was key to defeating Vitter & putting Edwards in office. He’s now on Edwards’ transition team. Why did he back a member of another party? Was it merely a matter of person vs party? Character vs morality? Or just plain lack of trust? This hours guest: Newell Norman - Sheriff, Jefferson Parish

  4. 11 - 25 The Think Tank 1210pm, T-Bob Hebert & Seth Dunlap


    Wed, 25 Nov 2015

    Should Les Miles stay or should he go? And, let’s be honest – at LSU – is education secondary to football? How could LSU afford to pay Les $15 NOT to work; pay a new coach to work...but the university has to fight not to go bankrupt? . An $80 million dollar swimming pool for LSU? No problem, students and their parents voluntarily agreed to pay for it. $15 million dollars for Les Miles not to work, plus millions for another coach to work? No problem let the donors pay for it. Money needed to keep LSU as an institute of quality education….and not go bankrupt? Now that’s a problem. This hours guest: T Bob Hebert - co-host of Double Coverage on WWL 8-midnight Seth Dunlap - WWL sports host & writer…director of Prep Football Roundup
