Starting February 19th, Jacob Hester will leave his midday role on 104.5 ESPN to join T-Bob Hebert on “Off the Bench” weekday mornings from 7a-10a. The show is simulcast on ESPN New Orleans 100.3, 1410 ESPN Alexandria, and tape delayed in Shreveport Louisiana on 1130 the Tiger.
Cox Sports Television (CST) will also carry the first two hours of the program live on television throughout the Gulf South Region every morning from 7:00 to 9:00 a.m.
Hester has been a part of the Guaranty family for three years hosting programs in Afternoon Drive and Middays. Hester can also be found regularly on Sirius XM as a part of the College Football Coverage and co-host of LSU Gameday Live on CST every Saturday in the fall. Hester remains one of most popular players in LSU Football History after his stay at LSU as a National Championship running back from 2004-07.
“I’m super excited to join T-Bob and his larger-than-life personality every morning! He shows up every morning highly prepared with his energy tank full. We’ve shared a National Championship on the field, now we take aim at being the best morning radio show out there” commented Jacob Hester.
Hebert begins his fifth year with 104.5 ESPN and “Off the Bench” after moving from WWL in New Orleans in 2016. Hebert, another former LSU football standout, can also be heard weekends on Eagle 98.1’s pre and post-game coverage of LSU Football every fall.
“Jacob Hester is a legend, if you love LSU, you love Jacob. I am beyond excited to have the opportunity to work with him every morning, this is going to be fun” stated T-Bob Hebert.
