Alex Labat

Alex joined the KATC news team in May of 2012 after being behind-the-scenes in our production department for over a year. Born in Houma and raised right here in Lafayette, he is a native of the area through and through. Attaining his education from Prairie
Elementary, Edgar Martin Middle, and Acadiana High School, Alex recently earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where he majored in Broadcasting and minored in English.

His love of broadcasting can been seen in his work on UL's campus, where he restarted the Radio and Television Digital News Association and was elected president. He also earned the "Outstanding Senior in Broadcasting" award from UL's Communication Department. "If there's one thing I've learned throughout the years growing up in's pride. Pride in where I come from, in what I've accomplished, and what I do for a living...and that's giving back to Lafayette what it's given to me."
