(KALB) - We can finally say that 2020 is a year that is behind us. Now, we are looking ahead to 2021. Before we get to the year ahead, here is a look back at all the year has brought to Central Louisiana.

The Year in State Politics

COVID-19 both directed and impacted things out of Baton Rouge this year, from the initial lockdown to continuing executive orders from Governor John Bel Edwards. Steven Maxwell recaps the year in politics. **PLEASE NOTE: This recap was recorded prior to the death of Congressman-elect Luke Letlow.

The Year in Education

COVID-19 made it a year like no other in education. From schools shutting down to re-opening and students and staff adjusting to school life during a pandemic. Jojuana Phillips recaps how 2020 has affected education this year.

The Year in Local Politics

This year has been packed with storylines both on the national and local level. Dylan Domangue recaps some of the biggest stories in local politics in 2020.

The Year in Court

2020′s impact on the Louisiana court system was anything but usual. In fact, effectively there was no court from March until July because the State Supreme Court ordered shutdowns. Federally, things took a modern turn with a new focus on the use of Zoom hearings. Brooke Buford wraps up a year in court.

The Year in Weather

A subject that captured headlines for a good portion of the year, at least here in Louisiana, was the weather. Meteorologist Rachael Penton takes a look back at a year that included tornadoes and two major hurricanes that hit Cenla.

The Year in Sports

Another area that we saw heavily impacted by the pandemic was local sports. So many things changed, from the number of fans being allowed at events to cancellations happening left and right. Sports Anchor Jamarcus Fitzpatrick takes a look at the sports year of 2020.

The Year in…Bloopers?
