About Bryan Toussaint
Bryan's career began as an part-time engineer and produciton assistant for WWNO-FM, the NPR affiliate in New Orleans. A year later he made the move to WWL,the then top-rated news talk radio station in the market. Bryan made the most of his five years at WWL working his way up from intern to show producer, covering everything from political conventions and hurricanes to Super Bowls, Final Fours and Mardi Gras. His strong writing ability and desire to spread his wings led to him to television. During the next three years Bryan served as an associate producer and assignment editor at WGNO-TV/ABC 26 News. His leadership and decision making ability helped WGNO capture a "Best Breaking News" Award from the Associated Press in 1999.
Later that year Bryan would leave WGNO for a writer/producer position with its sister station, WGNX, now WGCL, in Atlanta. During this time, Bryan began to rekindle an interest in print journalism and successfully landed a job as an arts and entertainment writer for Crossroads News, a small community newspaper based in the Atlanta suburb of Decatur, Georgia.
The new millenium brought new advances and challenges in journalism. Bryan saw an opportunity and began preparing himself for the digital world and through hard work, determination and a little skill, successfully made the transition from offline to online journalism, first as a web editor for Gannett's Atlanta station, WXIA/11Alive.com and eventually on to his current position with CNN.COM.
