Scoundrel Mugs WWL's Scoot
One mugger is the most talked-about criminal in New Orleans this week after attacking a radio morning show host.

The men approached him as he walked in the 600 block of Gravier Street around 3:50 a.m., the report stated.
Second Times-Picayune Reporter Jumps to WWL-TV
Update 1:55 p.m.
For Channel 4, McCarthy makes 2. WWL-TV announced this morning that Times-Picayune crime reporter Brendan McCarthy will be joining the TV station's investigative reporting staff. McCarthy, who received an offer from the NOLA Media Group but declined, was on the team that looked into the Danziger Bridge and Henry Glover cases, as well as the Homicide 37 series, which was a Pulitzer finalist in 2009. McCarthy joins David Hammer on the list of reporters WWL-TV scooped up in the wake of the announcement of the T-P's digitally focused future.
Times-Picayune Reporters David Hammer, Bill Barrow Leaving Paper
The Hammer comes down once again today at the Times-Picayune. Staffers who "survived" the mass firings that made way for Da Paper's reduced printing schedule earlier in June had until today to figure out if they wanted to stick around to see what the NOLA Media Group's more robust coverage was all about. At least two names who was offered a job apparently decided not to stay. About noon today, WWL-TV announced investigative reporter David Hammer would be joining their staff. Meanwhile, government and health care reporter Bill Barrow joined the AP, the AP reports.
More on NOPD Cop Who Called Trayvon Martin a 'Thug'
by Shay Sokol
In the wake of an NOPD officer's rapid suspension for posting comments calling Trayvon Martin a "thug," Mayor Mitch weighed in, and Giroir's past came into clearer focus. “The people of New Orleans and my Administration will not tolerate this reckless and offensive behavior,” Mayor Landrieu said in a statement yesterday.
Jim Henderson to Retire, Remain Voice of the Saints
Buddy D had the dress line, but Jim Henderson got to call the day that pigs flew. After this season, we'll still get to hear Henderson on WWL radio as the Saints' play-by-play man, but the local legend is stepping down from his longtime post in front of the camera at WWL-TV. Henderson's Monday sports reports gave voice to the Aints and lifted us up during the Miracle Run. The 65-year-old has been on Channel 4 since 1978. "If the Saints go to the Super Bowl, I will make that my last assignment here," Henderson wrote to his colleagues. "Otherwise it's time to turn the page on the next chapter of life." Coverage: WWL Da Paper Reaction
Garland Robinette Responds
Garland Robinette didn't respond to Da Paper's calls for the Saturday article about his $250,000 no-interest loan from local landfill magnate, Fred Heebe. But, fortunately, he has a radio show, so he has a whole three hours everyday to respond publicly. Robinette took a solid couple minutes of his WWL show this morning to address the matter, first saying that he would "like nothing more than to" discuss the article, but can't, then added"...My opinions are not and have not ever been for sale." Read the whole statement here.
He Who Weathered the Storm: Nash Roberts
Although he stepped down from the meteor green screen ten years ago, Hurricane-tracker Nash Roberts served 50 years in broadcasting, reached an age of and has now died at 92.
After working as a meteorologist during WWII, Roberts worked at WVUE and gained respect in the world of weather after his reports on Hurricane Audrey in 1956, Betsy in 1965 and Camille in 1969. He then changed HQ to WWL, and after 'retiring' in 1984, Roberts was back to report any major threat headed towards New Orleans.
