Jamarcus Fitzpatrick, nicknamed “Fitz”, began his journey with KALB as an intern in 2018, and officially became part of the team in 2019.
In February 2019, Fitz became KALB's weekend producer and worked his way into a sports anchor by summer 2019.
Fitz was born in Shreveport, LA where he attended C.E. Byrd High School. There he discovered a passion for sports broadcasting. After graduating in 2015, he began pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree at Louisiana College in Convergence Media with a concentration in sports media. He graduated in May 2019.
As a student at LC, he interned with KALB as a sports intern in the spring of 2018, was a member and coach’s captain of the LC Wildcat football team (2015-2018), and served as a sports reporter for Wildcats Media. During his senior year, he founded The Den TV, which is a branch of LC’s sports media. Through this newfound branch, Fitz has been able to mentor several students in the Convergence Media department at LC.
Fitz has also been able to be mentored by KALB’s News Director Al Quartemont, who serves as an adjunct professor at LC. He believes that Quartemont is one of the many reasons why he loves covering sports and credits him for many of his accomplishments in his young career.
Fitz enjoys working out, hanging with friends, and visiting his hometown where he also serves as a youth minister at his church, United Outreach, in his spare time. Don’t hesitate to give him a holler if you see him in the area!
