As Saints season gets underway, we're pleased to announce Gus Kattengell is joining Gambit's roster of contributing writers.

He'll be providing reports from training camp, pre- and post-game wraps of New Orleans Saints games and breaking Saints news on Blog of New Orleans — as well as a weekly column in Gambit. Gus joins our other sports correspondents — writer Alejandro de los Rios and photographer Jonathan Bachman.

G-Katt's been a familiar face (and voice) on local TV and radio for more than a decade. He's currently the co-host of "The Sports Hangover," the weekday sports show on WIST-AM, and the co-host of pre- and postgame radio broadcasts of Tulane University football. Before that, he was the sideline reporter for the Saints Radio Network and contributed to sports coverage on WWL-AM.

Gus is a graduate of Brother Martin High School and majored in broadcast journalism at the University of Southern Mississippi. He's won two regional Edward R. Murrow Awards from the Radio-Television News Directors Association for Sports Feature and several Louisiana Associated Press awards for Best Sportscast and Sports Story in the state. (Plus he just got married.)

He's also very active on social media (and not just on sports topics). Friend him on Facebook, follow him on Twitter — and look for his column in Gambit every week during Saints season.
