Bumped Out in the Big Easy

WVUE Morning Anchor Gerry Vaillancourt has been kicked to the curb. 

Vaillancourt, a former New Orleans Hornets broadcaster in multiple roles, said he was let go by the station last week.

“They said they wanted to go in a different direction,” said Vaillancourt. "They want a ‘news anchor’ type with a news background. I can understand that."

“It was a good place with good people, and I had many good times. Lots of folks there looked out for me. I have no complaints. I will miss the people I worked with. I have a real appreciation and respect for the people that assemble the news shows.”
