As a New Orleans-area native, Jude grew up a fan of all sports and teams in the area. It’s a passion for the games that brought him into the fields of sports broadcasting and journalism. Whether he’s informing, reporting or entertaining, Jude brings his own special flavor to the task at hand.
This Jesuit High School and Loyola New Orleans graduate is not just a “sports guy.” He previously managed a locally-owned business before assisting the military in the area during the important post-Katrina recovery period. Plus, he served as the assistant news director for WGSO, 990am Radio including hosting hour-long news reports.
Jude has also hosted several WGSO sports shows after starting out as a reporter for Ken Trahan’s Original Prep Football Report. Shows currently on the air that Jude helped to launch include Fantasy Frenzy, a fantasy sports analysis show, and Prep Plus, a high school sports feature program. Jude has served as a pregame show host for UNO athletics, color analyst for both UNO and Jesuit athletics, and play-by-play announcer for prep football and basketball games.
Perhaps best described as a jack-of-all-trades and a master of sarcasm, Jude currently hosts The Second String, a topical sports show on WGSO during the station’s weeknight “Sports Block.” Plus, he is a proud member of the NewOrleans.com family.
