Newell Normand

Mon-Fri 10am-1pm

The only way to change the world…is to change the conversation. And, WWL is doing just that. After a 40 year career in law enforcement; 37 with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s office, Newell Normand traded his sheriff’s badge for the microphone and the opportunity to lead in a different way – as host of WWL weekdays 10am to 1pm. 

As sheriff of one of Louisiana’s largest parishes and some 1,500 officers, Newell Normand was a leader celebrated for his unwavering smarts and emotional intelligence …deeply rooted institutional knowledge of metro New Orleans, our state & region… and a wildly popular capacity to deliver the uncut truth. Yes, he’s a man of strong opinions! That combination made Newell Normand one of Louisiana’s most successful leaders – revered, respected, and immensely popular. (In three elections Newell Normand scored unreal support - 91% of the vote in 2007, 92% of the vote 2011 and 88% (2015). That’s because he produced results – when Newell left office the crime rate in Jefferson Parish was its lowest since 1974.) That combination will make Newell Normand, not only an opinion leader, but a change agent. His passion, insights and gravitas make “The Newell Normand Show” a magnet for business, community leaders, new listeners, fans and advocates of Newell Normand. 

Newell Normand’s commitment to community runs as deep as his commitment to law enforcement – having served on several boards including Volunteers of America, East Jefferson General Hospital, Jefferson Children’s Advocacy Center, ForeKids Foundation, JPSA Fireman Flag Fund, Boy Scouts of America, etc…

And, Newell is a family man - husband to Shawn M. Bridgewater and proud father of John Taylor Normand and Sarah Elizabeth Normand.

Newell’s philosophy: “It’s real simple. Intellect drives excellence.” 

Newell’s mantra: WAKE UP, people!
