Brad Kessie

News Director

Biloxi, MS

Moments after Hurricane Katrina's eye passed through South Mississippi, it was Brad Kessie who stood near the water's edge and summarized the storm with a sentence that nobody will ever forget. He looked into a camera lens and said, "You're absolutely not going to believe what you're about to see."

Brad was named news director at WLOX in 2009. Before that, he was the station's senior reporter.

The Chicago native attended the University of Missouri School of Journalism. He moved to WLOX in 1988, and he's been a fixture in the community ever since. Brad lives in Gulfport.
