Funeral arrangements announced for KFDM anchor killed in crash

Good Evening,

Lee Peck from the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on for Nightcast.

Funeral arrangements are announced for longtime KFDM Anchor Bill Leger, who was killed in a crash early Saturday morning. The investigation into his death is still underway. According to State Police Bill's vehicle overturned on Highway 93 near Scott and landed in the northbound lane before being hit by another vehicle. The driver of that vehicle was arrested for DWI.

Plus, just 2 more shopping days until Christmas! – Hard to believe. And good luck if you haven't finished marking everything off your list. I was out there earlier today and it's a mad house. We hit the streets to find out what has so many people waiting until the last minute to find that perfect gift.

Also our "Made in Louisiana" series continues tonight. KPLC's Holly Carter takes us behind the scenes of "81" – a store with everything from custom made furniture to dumpster salvages.

Sam Gannon has your sports. Her Dallas Cowboys took on the New Orleans Saints… she'll have highlights and reaction.

And this winter weather system Cedric has been watching could bring some severe weather to Southwest Louisiana. Cedric has all the details and your holiday forecast.  

We'll see you tonight following NFL Football for all of these stories and much more. Until then we're always on at kplctv.com.
