New Sorrento police chief sworn in

From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

The Metro Council will have a few things to say later today about the ride sharing service Uber and the Baton Rouge Metro Airport. What's the conversation about?  Gerron Jordan gives you a look.  Plus, Senator David Vitter stops by to talk about the federal response to the Ebola Virus and what's being done at the state level.  And the grades are out for public schools in Louisiana. Now, we're waiting on teacher evaluations to come out later today.  We'll see you for 9NTM, The Big Extra Hour, and The Early Edition at 4:30 a.m.
