What's This All About?

Bob Griffin


When I came to Shreveport-Bossier, LA, in 1961 to go to work at KSLA TV, I planned to stay a year or so and then move on. Now it's 2011 and I'm 77 years young and by choice still here. I'm now with KTBS 3 anchoring, the weekend early morning First News. I also do a travel segment, Griffin's Arklatex, on KTBS 3 's Monday morning First News.

When I first came to Shreveport-Bossier, I quickly learned that I really loved the community and wanted to make it my home.

But Through the years, as much as I love living in what I now refer to as America's Caring Community, I also developed a love of travel. And because of my career in television, radio and news print , I've had the opportunity to do a lot of that.

As someone with a strong faith in God, I'm a big believer that just because you hit the big Five-Oh doesn't mean you automatically have to slow down. Anyone who says that healthy, mature-audults can't still stay active, have fun and learn new things are wrong. I know. I do.

Here on you'll find what I hope is interesting information about two things: Shreveport-Bossier America's Caring Community and travel destinations which appeal to mature-adults Griffin's Travel Library.


It's a diverse mixture, which for me and I hope for you, go hand-in-hand. I call it all "People to Meet, Places to Go and Things To See and Do.

Mark Porter of Porter's Fine Dry Cleaning is a partner for this website because Mark, like me, thinks the Shreveport-Bossier community is a great place to live.
