A familiar face on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Chet Landry joins the WLOX News Team as a Multi-Media Journalist and Reporter.
Born and raised in Biloxi, Chet is no stranger to “coast life.” A graduate of The University of Southern Mississippi, by way of Biloxi High School, his roots run deep.
Upon finishing his education, he set sail into the world of entertainment. Chet worked for a number of notable companies. Disney Creative Entertainment, Royal Caribbean Productions, Troika and NETworks are just a few. He was lucky enough to grace the stage with the original cast of Finding Nemo: The Musical, at the Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World.
Having returned home to Biloxi after an 18-year career, he can now be seen singing with the Coast Big Band and working with various theater companies around town. When he is not performing, he spends much of his additional free time serving as an officer with Krewe of Neptune… a position he is extremely proud to hold.
From Louisville to Los Angeles, Atlanta and New York, cities across the U.S are bracing for another night of potential protests following the decision not to charge the three officers involved in the death of Breonna Taylor.
The majority of casinos on the Gulf Coast have reopened their doors to guests after being closed for nearly 48 hours. In a year full of closures and re-openings, industry officials said the process has become routine.
Even though the Biloxi Chamber of Commerce has cited budgetary issues as their reason for departure, Cruisin' the Coast organizers said that they are making sure to keep the safety and health of event participants as the top priority.
