“I was sitting in the kitchen with my wife, we were fussing with some friends about, honestly, crawfish fettuccini and if the crawfish tails were too old. My wife said Gerald you need to calm down your neck is bulging. I said I have some bumps in my neck I need to go get checked out.”, said Gerald.

In typical Gruenig fashion, Gerald released an upbeat and positive video thanking viewers for all of the well wishes.  WATCH BELOW

A New Orleans native and Nicholls alum (4-year starter at center and Team Captain for the football team), Gruenig began his broadcasting career in Alexandria.  In 2014 Gruenig joined the KLFY Sports Department along with George Faust and Jeff Horchak.

Eventually, Gruenig moved to mornings and his star began to shine on Passé Partout.
