Panelist Bio


André Moreau
Guest Host and Television News Anchor

Emmy Award winner Andre' Moreau went from a career as a university fundraiser into television at the age of 27 and never looked back. His career has spanned 32 years working in top markets nationwide, covering hurricanes, earthquakes, Presidents and a Pope. He joined Louisiana Public Broadcasting this spring after eight years as prime news anchor at WAFB-TV in Baton Rouge. While there, WAFB not only dominated the local metro market, but had the No.-1 ranked 10 pm newscast for any local TV news station in the top 100 markets nationwide. He returned to Baton Rouge in 2008, after stops in Columbus and Detroit and 10 years in Los Angeles and San Diego.

He is currently serving as Honorary Co-Chair of the Baton Rouge Bicentennial Committee this year, is emcee of the Capital City's New Year's Eve bash, Red Stick Revelry, serves on the Board of Directors of Family Road of Greater Baton Rouge and received a Special Achievement Award from America's Wetland Foundation for Outstanding coverage of Louisiana's coastal dilemma. In his spare time, he is carving out a career as a professional photographer and will host 'Baton Rouge: A Bicentennial View,' an exhibit of his photographs of iconic Baton Rouge images from 6-8pm, May 18, 2017 at Shaw Center for the Performing Arts. He graduated from LSU in General Studies in 1981.

Current Topic


     10/18 - Louisiana Veterans Back Home

What are the programs and initiatives helping our veterans successfully transition to civilian life?
Since 2001, 2.6 million service men and women have been deployed to support operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Twenty-six percent of Louisiana’s veterans fought in these conflicts. The needs for these veterans are plentiful including securing employment and housing, and dealing with the mental rigors of transitioning from military back to civilian life.

Louisiana Public Square explores the unique programs and initiatives that are helping our state’s younger veterans successfully overcome these challenges on “Louisiana Veterans Back Home” Wednesday, October 24 at 7 p.m. on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE. (Recording Thursday, October 18.)

Veterans Coming Home is a collaborative, multi-platform public media project between Wisconsin Public Television and Kindling Group in partnership with local stations and other national organizations. Veterans Coming Home is made possible with support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
