Low performing school district selects new superintendent

From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

There's a new superintendent of schools in East Feliciana Parish and some new millionaires in Livingston Parish. We'll give you a look. We'll also give you a look at a big weekend for music in Baton Rouge. Live After Five, of course, kicks off tonight and the BR Blues Fest hits the stage this weekend. We'll have folks on the show for a bit of a preview. Will you be heading out tonight or this weekend? Check out our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras before hitting the road today to make sure there aren't any delays on your route. If you do run into any unusual traffic issues while on the roads, you can always see traffic on our WAFB app. Join us for 9NTM & The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.
