About Me

I've been covering sports since 2006. I began as a sportswriter at the St. Tammany News where I covered sports mostly the eastern part of the parish. When the paper closed in 2013, I was offered and I accepted the job of Sports Editor with the Bogalusa Daily News and have been there since.

I am a 1995 graduate of Brother Martin High School. I was a student manager from freshman-senior year.

I graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University in 2005 with a general studies degree.

About Me

DeRon L. Talley, Editor of the Donaldsonville Chief Newspaper (10/12)

My passion is sports writing. I've been a sports writer since a junior in high school and continued it through college where I've won several awards and now professionally where I'm continuing my success.

I'm from Folsom, La. a very very small town just north of Covington and I attended Covington High School, graduating from there in May of 2008.

I'm a May 2012 graduate from the University of Louisiana at Monroe (ULM) where I received a Bachelor's of Arts Degree in Mass Communication and a Minor in Spanish.

I also was a member of the ULM Track & Field team during my freshman and sophomore year. 

As the Editor of The Chief, I've been able to really get involved in the Donaldsonville community volunteering at the schools and in the community clean ups. I'm also an active member of the Donaldsonville Rotary Club, where we belive Service above Self.

About Me

I have been following high school basketball in Louisiana since well before I graduated high school. If there is a Louisiana team playing or event going on, you will find me in the building. For Prep Hoops Louisiana, I am the lead writer and decision maker on team rankings, prospect rankings, event coverage, and recruiting profiles. I provide coverage in all areas of Louisiana prep basketball which includes both high school and grassroots basketball. Finally, I've been an assistant coach and head coach at varying levels of basketball in the state. From helping run local middle school programs to assisting at different high school programs across the state.

I graduated from Northwestern State University with a broadcast journalism degree, minor in English. I plan on graduating with my master's from NSU in Sports Administration in May 2011.


I work at the Natchitoches Times as the Sports Editor and I host Sports on Call three days a week, which is an hour-long sports talk show. I also do Public Address announcing for the NSU basketball teams and volleyball and did baseball for four years, softball for one and soccer for one.
