Samantha Brown's Places to Love

Paradise Louisiana

The hosts of PARADISE LOUISIANA visited Crawfish Haven and produced a segment on the activities offered by this unique bed and breakfast.  The hosts, Gary Rispone and Don Dubuc of the show spent a night at Crawfish Haven/Mrs. Rose's Bed and Breafast. The next day, they were taken on a crawfish excursion by owner and guide, Barry Toups.

The hosts of this TV show spend many hours each week exploring all the treasures that Louisiana holds for men, women and youngsters of all ages. The show features both educational and entertaining segments about fishing, hunting, crawfishing, etc.

Host Gary Rispone was introduced to the outdoors by his father who is responsible for Gary’s love of the outdoors and his becoming a nature conservationist. In 2002, Gary created “Paradise Louisiana” to share his passion with the State of Louisiana. He treasures his memories of spending many hours in the outdoors, hunting and fishing with his father, brothers, children and grandchildren and other family and friends.

Co-Host, Don Dubuc is also an outdoorsman and conservationist, as well as a columnist, broadcaster, journalist, speaker and broadcaster. He has spent decades fishing and hunting the woods, swamps, marshes and bayous of the southeast. His knowledge of Louisiana has proven invaluable in discussions about rebuilding New Orleans and the Gulf South. Don’s radio programs, heard on a number of stations across the country since 1985, cover all aspects of the outdoors in a sincere, enthusiastic manner. His other outdoor media works include articles and photographs to a number of statewide magazines. He is an award-winning television reporter who has written, produced and hosted 21 years of outdoor features on New Orleans’ ABC 26 TV and other LA stations. Whether a live broadcast or magazine features, Don’s unique style is always interesting.
