It's a passion for the games that brought him into the fields of sports broadcasting and journalism. Whether he's informing, reporting or entertaining, Jude brings his own special flavor to the task at hand.

This Jesuit High School and Loyola New Orleans graduate is not just a "sports guy." He previously managed a locally-owned business before assisting the military in the metro area during the important post-Katrina recovery period. Plus, he served as the assistant news director for WGSO, 990am Radio including hosting hour-long news reports.

Jude has also hosted several WGSO sports shows after starting out as a reporter for Ken Trahan's Original Prep Football Report. Shows currently on 990am that Jude helped to launch include Fantasy Frenzy, a fantasy sports analysis show, and Prep Plus, a high school sports feature program. Jude has served as a pregame show host for University of New Orleans athletics, color analyst for both UNO and Jesuit athletics, and play-by-play announcer for prep football and basketball games.

As of late 2011, Jude took on the role of 'Voice of the Privateers' broadcasting UNO basketball and baseball games on radio and the internet.

Perhaps best described as a jack-of-all-trades and a master of sarcasm, Jude currently hosts The Jude Young Show, a topical sports show on WGSO during the station's weeknight "Sports Block." Plus, he is a proud member of the sportsNOLA.com family from its inception.
