After spending 4 years in radio, KLFY’s News Director called Hope Ford and offered her the greatest opportunity; the chance to full-fill a life-long dream of becoming a reporter. She joined the staff as a general reporter in July of 2012.

Six months later, Hope was offered the chance to anchor the morning weekend edition of Passe Partout. Another six months would pass, and she took over the nighttime Weekend Report.

In her time at KLFY, she has covered a wide range of stories. She was the first person in Louisiana to report on Judge Edward Rubin striking down the state’s same-sex marriage ban. Hope prides herself on capturing exclusive interiews, most recently, with a man who was charged with manslaughter after taking the law into his own hands. Hope has had the opportunity to travel to New Orleans with the Louisiana Ragin Cajuns’ two years in a row, to report on the R+L Carrier’s Bowl.

When she’s not hitting the streets at a one-made band reporter, or sitting behind the anchor’s desk, Hope enjoys motivational speaking at area high schools. Most recently, she was named Co-Chair of the Acadiana Walk to Cure Diabetes and helped raise funds for the local chapter of the JDRF.

Hope was born in Mamou, but has lived in Lafayette a majority of her life. She attended UL Lafayette and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Coummications.
