Times-Picayune senior editor James O'Byrne was among those at the epicenter of the newspaper's coverage of Hurricane Katrina, evacuating the newsroom on one of the last trucks out, then overseeing the construction of a satellite newsroom, copy desk, and photo desk in Baton Rouge. He is also among the scores of employees at the paper whose house and belongings were destroyed by the storm. Recently, the paper was awarded Pulitzer prizes for public service and breaking news for its coverage of Hurricane Katrina and the flooding of New Orleans. O'Byrne joins Patt for a look back at Katrina and a look forward to the future of New Orleans.
