NEW ORLEANS, La. -- Funeral services will be held Saturday for a member of the WWL-TV family, who lost his battle with cancer earlier this week.

Freddy Hungerford worked as an engineer and master control operator at WWL-TV for nearly twenty years.

Hungerford's job at WWL-TV kept him 'behind the control board' keeping channel 4 on the air and at the top of our game, even in times of crisis, including Hurricane Katrina.

Fred was also an Air Force Veteran and had previous careers in sales and customer service.

Hungerford is survived by his wife, eight children and thirteen grandchildren.

Fred was 60-years-old.

The WWL-TV family gives condolences go to his friends and family, including all of us who were proud to call him a co-worker.
