WVUE Adds Jeff Duncan As Saints Analyst
Gray-owned Fox affiliate WVUE New Orleans (DMA 50) has hired former New Orleans Times-Picayune sports columnist Jeff Duncan, now writing for the popular sports website The Athletic, as an analyst. Duncan will bring his Saints expertise to Fox 8’s coverage of the team.
Duncan has been honored four times as the Columnist of the Year by the Louisiana Sports Writer’s Association. The author of two Saints-centered books, he has covered the Saints longer than any journalist in the nation, according to WVUE.
“Adding Jeff to the sports team makes our coverage that much better,” said Tim Ingram, WVUE VP-GM. “He is a great fit for the Fox 8 team, and we know he will deliver the level of in-depth Saints analysis fans want.”
Duncan will appear in multiple time slots, including Game Plan airing at 10:35 p.m. on Wednesdays. He will be a weekly contributor on Saints game days on Fox 8 Live Tailgate, and he will also appear weekly on Fox 8 News at 10 PM when he will deliver his commentary regarding the Saints and their performance during the previous day’s game.
The Saints are scheduled to play nine of their 16 regular season games on WVUE.
