Wesley Boone joined KTAL as a sports reporter March 2020 and took on the role of Sports Director in September 2020.
Wesley got his start behind and in front of the camera working for the Southeastern Channel at Southeastern Louisiana University, where he honed and developed his passion for storytelling.
During his time at Southeastern, he was afforded the opportunity to cover all of Southeastern’s major sports.
In 2018, he was awarded Collegiate Louisiana Broadcaster of the Year by the Louisiana Association of Broadcasters, the first winner in exclusively sports coverage. He was also awarded Second place in Sports Feature Story, First place in Feature Story at the Collegiate Associated Press Awards, First place in Videography and a Best in Show Award.
He was hired by his hometown station, KALB, in 2018, as the weekend sports anchor. He covered all Cenla sports had to offer for over a year before accepting a position as an MMJ for the #1 High School Sports Show in the Nation, 49ers Cal-Hi Sports Report.
When Wesley is not at work, he enjoys going to the movies, watching sports and hanging out with his family.
