Channel 6 News Today
The first Friday in December is WDSU Day at Shady Pond. "Channel 6 News Today" originates
from the Tree Farm. The program is broadcast by satellite in the 5:30 to 7:00 A.M. time slot.
Hosted by Steve Bellas and Juli Miller, it is always a festive time and a bit unpredictable. The
broadcast includes local choirs, holiday fire safety, preview of the new exotic trees, trimmer
demonstration and usually some surprises. Chef Michael Roussel surprised us recently by
preparing Bananas Foster, the Brennan's original, at the Tree Farm...yummy in the tummy.
In prior years, variations included discussions of Louisiana's coastal restoration project and a
planting demonstration for living Christmas trees.
Be sure to tune in to WDSU-TV New Orleans on the first Friday in December and join the fun. It is broadcast live from Shady Pond Tree Farm.
