Good morning Acadiana. KTDY has lost one its own, Ray Sutley. He was a broadcast legend. Bernadette Lee said it best, "I can guarantee you that every single person in this building, and every single person who worked with Ray, was friends with Ray and loved Ray, has already, or they will at some point, be reduced to a blubbering mess remembering their friend Ray Sutley. Yes, he really was that great of a guy." To Ray's family and friends, our hearts hurt with you.

Ray, Eden & Justine
TSM, Shelley Kilburn
