The Daily Advertiser's loss is a boon for KBON 101.1 FM in Eunice. The daily paper's longtime Arts and Entertainment Editor Herman Fuseiler has accepted a full-time gig manning the radio station's weekday morning show from 6-10 a.m. Fuselier made the announcement on Friday, his last day with the paper.

hermanfuselier.jpgSince January 2006, Fuselier has hosted Zydeco Stomp on KBON from 4-7 p.m. on Sundays, featuring zydeco, blues, and rhythm and blues music. Before signing on with The Advertiser, he worked as a sports writer for The Daily World in Opelousas for 14 years, where he also wrote about local music.

Unfortunately, the career move also signals the end of Fuselier’s Bayou Boogie radio program that has aired on KRVS 88.7 FM on Saturday nights and Sunday afternoons for the last 15 years, featuring swamp pop, Cajun and zydeco music. His last show was Sunday. But his television program of the same name where he interviews local musicians will continue to air on KDCG TV, Channel 9 on Cox, on Fridays at 5:30 p.m. and Saturday afternoons at 1:30 p.m.
