Rob Perillo, Louisiana’s KATC-TV3 Chief Meteorologist, voted as Southern Satire News Man of the Year.
As we near the end of 2017, we look back and try to encapsulate what really made 2017 a great year. As Americans, we had a tough year for many reasons however, we would like to celebrate the good people that never let us down, local icons.
People Magazine voted Blake Shelton as “Sexiest Man Alive.”
Let’s be real here. Rain or shine, you better believe that Chief Meteorologist Rob Perillo is going to be there for you. The oilfield may never bounce back, Gordon McKernan might own every single billboard in the State of Louisiana, we may even have a bad crawfish season or two, but Rob is a news personality and local icon who never changes.
Earlier this summer, Rob even released his own line of shoes. The Perilloafer came in KATC red and black and were more popular than Yeezy’s and even Air Jordan’s. Acadian’s slept in parking lots in hopes of getting their hands on these kicks!
There are a handful of Acadian icons: Justin Wilson, Tom Voinche, etc, and we’re adding Rob to that list. If you see him around town peeling out in his convertible, the wind blowing through his hair, give him a big thumps up and buy that man some wine!
