FOX19 WXIX morning Reporter Scott Schneider - WAFB 9 News Baton Rouge, Louisiana News, Weather, Sports

Scott Schneider

Having worked in broadcast news since way back in high school, I am both excited and honored to join the team here at FOX19.

I'm a native southern Californian who has spent the past 15 years in the Buckeye State with no intention of ever going back.

In part because of the amazing people here in the heartland, but more so because I married an Ohio girl who has no intention of leaving!

My wife Kimberly and I recently celebrated our 10 year anniversary and also welcomed an addition to our family, a precocious little French Bulldog we call Lucie.

A pro-football fanatic, I had the good fortune of catching my first Bengals game at Paul Brown Stadium last season.

I will always cheer for the Reds (if for no other reason than Dusty Baker's GREAT career as a Dodger), but my favorite teams remain on the west coast and include the Lakers, the Dodgers and the San Diego Chargers.

If you have any story ideas, contact me at scottschneider@fox19.com.

    Deadly virus threatens local crawfish industry

    A deadly virus is threatening the crawfish industry in Southwest Louisiana. It's called white spot syndrome virus and it was first discovered in Thailand, but somehow it made its way to ponds in South Louisiana and specialists are struggling to find the funds to research a solution.  “The catch was increasing and increasing and then it dropped 70% and that's when you saw the dead crawfish floating in the water,” said a crawfish farmer of 34 years, Ian Garbarino.
