Gerald Gruenig joined the News 10 Sports team in June of 2014 after spending a year at KALB in Alexandria, Louisiana as the Weekend Sports Anchor.

Gerald was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. His family owns a Po Boy restaurants in the Big Easy named “Koz’s”.

Gruenig blames his loud tone and outgoing personality on his early years spent growing up in the restaurant business.
