KNOE Evening Anchor
Jeff Horchak anchors KNOE 8 News at 5, 6, and 10.
Jeff joined the KNOE evening news team in June of 2019. Right after joining KNOE, Jeff landed the biggest interview of his career: An exclusive one-on-one with President Donald Trump during a campaign rally in Monroe.
He comes to KNOE from Lafayette, where for the past 5 years he anchored KLFY's award-winning morning show, Passe Partout.
Previous to that, he was a sports anchor and reporter for 12 years in Tyler, Texas, Alexandria, La., and Lafayette. Covering his favorite NFL team, the New Orleans Saints, during their Championship run to Super Bowl XLIV in Miami, was the highlight of his sportscasting career. One of the most sobering stories Jeff covered was the Lafayette Grand Theater Shooting in July of 2015. Jeff was live on the scene for hours interviewing officials, as well as patrons who were inside the theater during the shooting.
Jeff is a graduate of Southeastern Louisiana University. In his spare time, he enjoys working out, attending sports events, and spending time with his dog named Trouper. Jeff adopted the Lab-Heeler pup after he was dumped in a ditch. If you see Jeff out and about, make sure you tell him hello!
