BATON ROUGE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Attorney General Buddy Caldwell announced Monday Leo Honeycutt will join the Louisiana Department of Justice as director of communications.

Honeycutt, an award-winning television journalist, author and communications professional, began his career as a reporter at KNOE in Monroe where he first began covering Caldwell as district attorney. 

For 12 years, he served as co-host of south Louisiana's morning television show 2une-In at WBRZ in Baton Rouge. He has won numerous Associated Press awards for journalism, including Feature Reporter of the Year.

In 2005, Honeycutt was selected to pen former Louisiana Governor Edwin W. Edwards' official biography.  Edwin Edwards: Governor of Louisiana was published in December 2009, becoming a national bestseller and one of the highest grossing books in the state's history.

Honeycutt joins the attorney general's office after most recently serving as president of Honeycutt Communications Inc.  He's also served as director of media and investor relations for Manville Corp. and director of the Foundation for Historical Louisiana.

As communications director, Honeycutt will head up a team of communications staff in the attorney general's public information office and serve as the primary point of contact for media relations.
