After 21 years at New Orleans ABC-affiliate WGNO, outdoors reporter Don Dubuc is joining rival WWL, the market’s CBS-affiliate, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Dubuc, who worked without a contract at WGNO, told the Times-Picayune the move is “a natural fit for several reasons.”

“I want to concentrate on the culture of fishing and hunting here,” he said. “It’s very much a part of our ingrained heritage and culture down here.”

Dubuc will make his WWL debut tomorrow. He will be joined for his first report on the 6 p.m. newscast by the reporter he is replacing: Frank Davis, who retired from WWL last year.
