Gambit political editor and columnist Clancy DuBos, a longtime political analyst for WWL-TV, will begin a regular commentary segment for the station's Eyewitness News this week. "Clancy's Commentary" will run each Tuesday during WWL-TV's 6 p.m. news. Longtime New Orleanians will remember the station's commentaries delivered for 37 years by former WWL news director Phil Johnson, who retired in 1999 and passed away earlier this year.
"I'm not going to be able to fill his shoes, but I will certainly try to follow in his footsteps," DuBos says. "He tried to give people additional information and insight in his editorials, and that's what I hope I can do in my commentaries."
"Through his appearances on WWL-TV and his writings in Gambit, Clancy has shown time and time again that he can cut through to the core of issues and explain how and why they are important," says WWL news director Chris Slaughter. "We are excited that Clancy will offer his unique and insightful perspective on a regular, weekly basis. Viewers expect in-depth presentations of important issues, and we think this is another example of WWL's commitment to that."
"Clancy's Commentary" will also be posted at Gambit's website (www.bestofneworleans.com) every Wednesday morning.
