L’OBSERVATEUR is proud to announce that we have launched our latest multi-media venture — The LaPlace NewsMedia Podcast brought to you by St. James Parish Hospital.

The initial broadcast appeared on our website,, on Wednesday (April 3) and is easy to download or play from the site.

Interested users are welcome to visit, and click on “podcast,” which is located at the top of the page in our main navigation bar.

The inaugural podcast featured an interview with news editor Brooke Robichaux, detailing her coverage of the LaPlace Feed Store second degree murder trial, which concluded last week in Edgard.

Robichaux attended numerous pre-trial hearings, spoke to family members of the victim and defendant and attended each day of the trial.

Additional episodes are planned weekly and will feature guests and subjects centered on the issues and events with the most impact for River Region residents.

Please, give us a listen.
