Mark Menard made his way to New Orleans by way of a south Louisiana childhood in Morgan City and a formative stint in Thibodaux where he earned a degree in journalism from Nicholls State University. He started at WWL in 2003 as a twiddler of knobs and answerer of phones, but worked his way through the ranks to become a deliverer of sports.
Mark serves as the weekday afternoon sports anchor for WWL and mans the control room during Sports Talk with Bobby Hebert and Kristian Garic, a role he also handles on New Orleans Saints gamedays during WWL's full slate of coverage as well as the game itself.
In addition, he's recently taken over hosting duties for the Toyota Locker Room Show after Saints games.
Mark also provides a robust array of digital content for WWL.com, whether covering the day-to-day activities of the Saints and Pelicans, big-time New Orleans sporting events like the NBA All-Star Game and WrestleMania, or indulging his nerdier pastimes at local comic conventions. Mark aspires to one day rise to a level of importance that affords him many leather-bound books and a home that smells of rich mahogany.
