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.
With little more than one week until the July Fourth weekend, the tourism season on the Gulf Coast is in full swing. However, with recent beach water closures, tourism officials are worried that our yearly visitors might look elsewhere for their summer fun.
The Lynn Meadows Discovery Center bids a fond farewell to a woman who has become a staple within their walls. Tonya Sanders Hays created the WINGS Performing Arts program 20 years ago from the ground up and will now watch the group move on without her.
Organizations from across the Gulf Coast were in attendance to answer questions about financial services to real estate to hospice care for the aging community. Organizers said that community is why they continue to host the event.
