In the film When The Levees Broke could you tell me what the name of the man that was from the Radio Station in New Orleans and what that Radio Station was? Awesome film. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Mr. Freeman that had to leave his deceased mother behind.


That man's name is Garland Robinette. He is a former television anchor, a radio host, a Vietnam veteran, a painter, a cursader for Wetlands conservation and an all around badass.

To see him lose it like that in the film was heartbreaking. He helped many people make it through the immediate days following the storm, myself included.
