I’m Rob Kirkpatrick. I’m a husband. I’m a Dad. I’m a proud UL Lafayette graduate. I’m a fierce reporter at heart and always digging for a good story. But most importantly in this space: I’m the fearless leader of Townsquare Media's news brands in Lafayette and Bernadette Lee’s partner in crime on “Acadiana’s Morning News”. News is something I always knew I wanted to do. My first on-air experience was in 3rd grade at Lyon Elementary in Covington, LA. I gave the announcements, weather and cafeteria menu every morning on closed circuit television. Since then, I have covered news with KATC in Acadiana, in Dallas with FOX 4’s “Good Day”, in Atlanta with CNN Newsource and now back in Lafayette with Townsquare Media. I consider myself lucky to do what I love and raise my two little girls in Acadiana with my amazing wife Sarah. People often find it challenging to adequately describe what makes this area so great. Some people call it culture, community or try to quantify the level of ‘happiness’ in Acadiana, but I think it’s a little bit of all those things. People here have heart like no where else I have ever lived. I consider it an honor to be welcomed back to Acadiana with open arms and I hope to be your voice day-in and day-out as we speak to newsmakers every morning on “Acadiana’s Morning News”. So, thank you. Email Me: Rob@kpel965.com
