Travis Webb is the Sports Director at KATC-TV3. Travis joined KATC Sports as a Sports Reporter and Weekend Sports Anchor in July 2008. He was promoted to Sports Director in August 2011.
The Crowley native returned to Acadiana after graduating from Syracuse University in Syracuse, New York in May 2008 with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. While in Syracuse, Travis was a play-by-play voice and sports reporter for WAER-FM, covering SU's football, basketball and lacrosse teams. He also gained experience by interning at WTVH-TV in Syracuse.
Travis has had the pleasure of covering many big sporting events in Acadiana: UL's New Orleans Bowl appearances, LSU's 2012 BCS National Championship game in New Orleans, covering his Notre Dame Pioneer's 2009 State Championship (of course) and the Saints' Super Bowl in Miami just to name a few.
The Associated Press has awarded Travis with Best Sportscast (1st- 2010, 2011 and 2012) and Best Sports Story (1st-2012, 2nd-2009). His biggest honor was being awarded the 2011 Media of the Year for LCG President's Awareness Committee for Citizens with Disabilities.
When Travis is not on the field covering the action, you can find him scoping out Acadiana restaurants, cheering on his beloved Orange (Go 'Cuse!) and trying to garden (He's getting there).
