Sports Talk with Bobby Hebert & Kristian Garic

Monday-Friday 4-8pm

Join Bobby Hebert & Kristian Garic for the best Sports Talk around

Bobby Hebert, known to Saints fans as “the Cajun Cannon,” is the first quarterback to lead the team to the NFL playoffs.  Now, the former pro (1983-1996) talks sports on the flagship station of the New Orleans Saints weekdays 4 to 8pm. The legendary stage is like “Cheers” to Bobby, who is a household name in the Gulf South.  Hebert grew up in Cut Off, Louisiana, played ball at South Lafourche High School and went to college at Northwestern State, LA.  Bobby’s first pro gig was in the USFL…first the Michigan Panthers then the Oakland Invaders, where he received many honors:  the Invaders were runners-up in the USFL Championship (1985);  in 1983 Bobby led the Panthers to the USFL championship and he was the MVP in the game and the Most Outstanding Quarterback in the league that season.  Hebert still holds the record of the league’s all-time leading passer with 10,039 career passing yards.  In 1991, after leading the Saints to the best start ever in franchise history, Hebert was honored with the cover of Sports Illustrated on October 7th.  In 1993, Bobby signed with the Atlanta Falcons and played in the NFL Pro Bowl in 1994. (And, yes, Saints fans forgive him as he’s the “Founding Father of the Who Dat Nation.” (Founded Dec. 10, 2006 after Katrina.)  Bobby is a proud family man, married to Joan (Jojo) Hebert and father to four children, Ryan, Cammy, T-Bob and Beaux.  He has two beautiful granddaughters, Alice and Magnolia.  

Kristian Garic is a former United States Marine, who served our nation from 1997 to 2001.  Kristian grew up in a military family; the places he called home were army bases in Fort Polk, LA, Fort Knox, KY and West Point, NY. Following his honorable discharge from the Marines, Garic came home to New Orleans not knowing exactly what he’d do for a living. But, a part-time job in radio steered his future.  Kristian Garic’s career at WWL had humble beginnings - a prep football reporter.  He quickly rose in the ranks to morning show producer then morning sports anchor and sports talk producer to Saints sideline reporter.  Then, in March 2018, Kristian landed his dream job, co-hosting SportsTalk with his boyhood hero, Bobby Hebert.  Kristian also co-hosts pre and post LSU and Saints game day coverage.  Garic is father of 3 amazing sons, Hunter, Hayden and Holden, and owns a chocolate Labrador named Marine. Kristian expresses his love for the red, white & blue at the end of every show with the Marne battle cry, Sempre Fi - always faithful.
