Our Red Hat group visits local TV Station WDSU

Today was so much fun.  I am a member of the Jazzy Red Hat group in our little community.
We take turns planning outings for our group.  This month I was in charge of planning our trip.  My DH and I have our coffee every morning while watching the morning show on Channel 6, WDSU.  I feel as though they are all part of our family. We have enjoyed their company for many years. I always thought it would be nice to meet some of the broadcasters in person. SO....... Today a group of us drove into New Orleans for one of our monthly trips.  We had a great time touring Channel 6, WDSU TV.

Here are a few of the photos we took.

Ann Bell (front left) gave us a tour of the studio.  I am so sad that I did not get a picture of Ms Lu Adams, the sweet lady who set up the date and time for our tour. Everyone there was so nice to us.

Jay Galle, a meteorologist,  gave us a demonstration of how they look at maps in front of a 'green' screen.

Diane gave it a try...pointing at a screen while looking at a map on a monitor is not so easy to do!

We were aloud to watch a live news update broadcast. 

We were all able to get behind the news desk with 
Jay Galle and Sula Kim (she is new to the station)  I think she will fit in perfectly with all the others on the news team.  

The news room was a busy place!

Susan and I were able to get a picture with Randi Rousseau.  She does the news in the morning.  She is the one I contacted to get the plans of this tour started.

Here is a photo of the WDSU TV studios.


  1. I'm sure that outing was great fun. Your group should be very happy with the activity that you planned. Thanks for sharing.
