Baton Rouge, La.
Jacques Doucet reached the 20-year milestone for WAFB-TV sports in March of 2021, covering the most glorious two decades in Louisiana sports history here in Baton Rouge. Jacques has covered Super Bowls, College Football national championship games, NCAA Final Fours, College World Series, Joe Burrow's Heisman Trophy win in New York City and much, much more.
Jacques has also become an extremely strong force on social media, with nearly 43,000 Twitter followers as of May of 2021.
Along with his work at WAFB, Jacques founded a nonprofit 501-C charity called Red Rock & Blue. The organization holds a major charity fundraiser each summer to benefit Louisiana military, consisting of three major events - "The Celebrity/Sorta Celebrity Softball Game," "The Red, Rock and Blue Charity Concert" and "The Doucet/Begnaud Softball/Kick Ball Invitational."
RRB gives primarily to local military charity organizations to benefit those who serve and their families. Such organizations are The Blue Star Mothers of Louisiana, Wounded War Heroes and Support Our War Heroes. RRB has donated a total of $250,0000 to charity during the last five years alone (2016-2020).
Typically 80-100 teams participate in the RRB softball tournament each year, with multi-platinum bands like Sugar Ray, Everclear, Gin Blossoms, Eve 6, LIT, Soul Asylum and Sponge playing concert events in years past.
