Live Coverage: Jazz Half Marathon

Saturday morning is my earliest wake-up call since leaving the morning shift at WESH in Orlando 14 months ago. The WDSU crew working the Second Annual Jazz Half Marathon and Relay has a 4:30 a.m. call. It’s early, but the cause is a great one. The goal is to raise funds for Children’s Hospital, promote health and fitness and have a good time. We plan to do just that.

WDSU is broadcasting the event live from 6-10 a.m. from various locations along the race course. Morning news anchor Melanie Hebert and I will be live from the balcony of Ernst Cafe on S. Peters.

The Half Marathon is a standard, 13.1 mile course stretching from the New Orleans Convention Center to Audubon Park and back. The race will start on Convention Center Blvd. at Girod St. and finish on S. Peters St. at Girod St.

Come see us at Ernst Cafe. I’ll post updates here and on Twitter throughout the morning. The race will also be streamed live at



  1. Will the coverage be on the internet anywhere after the race? I hear that I was on TV but did not record the coverage and would like to see it.
