Jacob Bradford is thrilled to be reporting on your stories in Baton Rouge.

Born and raised on the West Bank of New Orleans, he knew early on that a life of cameras and breaking news was for him.

When Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast in 2005, Jacob and his family relocated to West Texas. He finished high school and college in Texas.

Not ready to give up the Lone Star State yet, Jacob accepted a job as a weekend anchor/reporter at KRBC in Abilene.

Jacob earned a Lone Star Emmy for his work in “Then & Now: The Assassination of John F. Kennedy,” which covered the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination.

After two years at KRBC, the late nights were switched for early mornings at KSLA in Shreveport in 2015. After two years in North Louisiana, Jacob decided that it was time to head home to South Louisiana.

In April of 2017 he accepted a producer position at WGNO, in New Orleans.

He climbed through the producer ranks, before taking over the anchor chair on the weekends, and becoming a reporter during the week.

Jacob wanting a change of pace after five years at WGNO, took the evening anchor position at NBC Local 33 News.

You can catch him weekdays, at five, six, and ten.
