President nominates BR attorney as US dist. judge

From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

The next breakaway school district in East Baton Rouge is now one step closer. Is this just another form of segregation like some are saying or is it the right call? Lots of people are weighing in on both sides of this right now. We'll lighten the mood a bit with a preview of our big Road Trip coming up tomorrow. It will be the first of four to come. We start in Iberville Parish, Plaquemine to be exact. Don't forget you can catch our 9Online webcasts three times throughout the day. 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.
