A familiar face has returned to WLOX as Bill Snyder rejoins the team as one of our Multi-Media Journalists.
The Biloxi native worked for two years at WAPT in Jackson before his first stint with WLOX, which included a two-year run as the station's capital reporter from 1994-96. From there, Bill moved back to the Coast and worked alongside A.J. Giardina as a weekend sports anchor. Bill was also part of the Edward R. Murrow Award-winning coverage of Hurricane Katrina's arrival and aftermath along the Coast.
In late 2005, he left the world of television and worked as public relations coordinator and sports information director at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College for nine years. During that time, you may have seen Bill anchoring the college's award-winning football coaches show "Bulldog Blitz," which aired on WLOX.
In recent years, you probably saw Bill working at Mississippi Power events when he worked for the utility company for a little more for three years. On Friday nights each fall, you likely heard him broadcast Biloxi Indian football games.
Bill is an MGCCC and Southern Miss alum and recently married fellow Golden Eagle Paula Delcambre. Paula and Bill's two children, Colin and Caroline, can all tell you his passion comes out during football season, when every four days in the fall his beloved MGCCC Bulldogs, Biloxi Indians, Golden Eagles and Saints take to the gridiron.
For now, he’s back home, working to bring you the news for South Mississippi.
Prep baseball teams from around the region have plenty of chances to knock the ball out of the park at the 2020 Battle at the Beach event. Some attendees enjoy the experience so much that it’s becoming a spring break tradition.
We’re just about two months away from the scheduled opening of the Mississippi Aquarium in Gulfport. While construction work continues at that location, businesses near the aquarium site are also counting down the days until the $100 million facility opens.
Traffic cameras are just about everywhere, and soon, more surveillance cameras will be popping up around Biloxi thanks to a $150 thousand grant from the U.S. Justice Department and a group called project NOLA.
