From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning
"Swamp People" was a hit as soon as it hit the screen. You know Troy Landry, but do you know the lady beside him? We continue our "Other Half" series with a look at his wife and how she's handling all this. Plus, we'll bring you the latest "Does It Work?" Ever heard of "Instantly Alarm?" Is it really a very cheap alternative to those expensive alarm systems and does it have any other uses? Find out about any road delays before leaving the house with our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras and if you run into any backups while driving, you can always see traffic on our WAFB app. Join us for 9NTM & The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.
