Chefs from around the region feed victims of the flood and more.



This is a “Tale From The Flood,” and, it’s an early one.  Early on that first Sunday, a group of New Orleans chefs, food suppliers, and restaurant owners borrowed refrigerator trucks, loaded them with donated food, trailered cooking equipment and set about the task of feeding victims and first responders in Ascension, East Baton Rouge and Livingston.  One of the first in was chef Michael Brewer, along with chefs Cody and Samantha Carroll.  He shared some of their experiences, which continue to this day.

He was the morning show co-host, and helped build the show and the station into a top 10 performer. From there, Brian has moved on to work in Inbound Marketing, where he strives to marry the worlds of traditional advertising w/ the marketing methods of tomorrow.
