Gerald Gruenig, a New Orleans native, joined the KLFY News 10 Sports team in June of 2014 after spending a year at KALB in Alexandria, Louisiana as the Weekend Sports Anchor.
Gerald now works on KLFY News 10’s morning show Passé Partout.
In October of 2015, Gerald started a segment that airs every Thursday ONLY on KLFY News 10 called Acadiana Eats. Since then, Gerald has been to more than 300 locally-owned restaurants in the Acadiana area.
Gruenig graduated from Nicholls State University in the Spring of 2013 with a degree in Broadcast Journalism.
While at studying at “Harvard on the Bayou”, Gruenig was a Team Captain and four-year starter at Center along the offensive line for the Nicholls State University football team.
In the Spring of 2013 Gruenig interned at WDSU in New Orleans where he worked under Sports Anchors Fletcher Mackel and Chris Miles.
Gerald was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. His family owns a Po Boy restaurant in Harahan named “Koz’s”.
The first “Koz’s” restaurant opened up in November of 2005 after the Gruenig family lost their home and original restaurant “The Po Boy Bakery” to Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Gerald’s Childhood home was actually located on top of the “The Po Boy Bakery” in Gentilly.
New Orleans definitely has a special place in Gerald’s heart but he knows firsthand that every region of Louisiana has plenty to offer.
Gerald has spent the last 16 years living in various parts of the state including Covington, Mandeville, Thibodaux, Alexandria, and now Lafayette.
Since moving to Lafayette, Gruenig has completely fallen in love with the area’s unique culture. Gruenig formed his own Zydeco Band in the Spring of 2018. Gerald Gruenig & Gentilly Zydeco perform at various festivals and local music venues.
Gruenig lives in Lafayette with his lovely wife Ariel, daughter Adeline, and their two dogs.
