Jacob Hester moves from middays to mornings at Guaranty Broadcasting “104.5 ESPN” WNXX Baton Rouge, joining T-Bob Hebert on “Off the Bench” weekday mornings from 7a-10a. The show is simulcast on “ESPN New Orleans 100.3,” “1410 ESPN Alexandria” and tape delayed in Shreveport on “1130 the Tiger.”
Cox Sports Television (CST) will also carry the first two hours of the program live in the Gulf South Region from 7-9am.
Hester has worked on-air for Guaranty Broadcasting for three years in afternoon drive and middays. He’s also heard on Sirius XM covering college football and as co-host of LSU Gameday Live Saturdays in the fall.
Hester was a National Championship running back at LSU from 2004-07. Hebert is another former LSU football standout.
Hebert begins his fifth year with “Off the Bench” after moving from Entercom news/talk “The Big 870” WWL New Orleans in 2016.
“I’m super excited to join T-Bob and his larger-than-life personality every morning,” Hester said in a press release. “He shows up every morning highly prepared with his energy tank full. We’ve shared a National Championship on the field, now we take aim at being the best morning radio show out there.”
