Natchitoches gets Friday Football Fever

By Brooke Shirley

KTBS/KPXJ hosted Friday Football Fever “Legends Reception” Aug. 18 at the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame in Natchitoches. As guests arrived they were greeted with a smile and a name tag. Right after, everyone signed a banner and a football to present to Bob Griffin, the special guest of the evening.

Griffin is a journalist that’s covered sports at KTBS for more than 50 years. Tony Taglavore said, “Bob Griffin is a living legend, the likes of which we may never see again.” Tony is the Owner/Executive Producer at Sweet Lou Media and is also the Play-by-Play/Color Analyst at Northwestern State University.

Everyone quietly spoke among themselves aside from a few bursts of laughter as they awaited the Live ArkLaTex Football Legends Show “Where Legends Are Made” Broadcast. The guests were permitted to act as an audience for the broadcast that was hosted by News Anchors Alex Anderson and Tatum Everett.
