NEW ORLEANS – New Orleans Athletics is proud to announce a new six-episode television series, Inside #NOLAsTeam, presented by Ochsner airing locally on Cox Sports Television. Inside #NOLAsTeam is a TV show highlighting the stories and personalities on the Lakefront. The premiere episode airs on Tuesday, September 15 at 7:30 p.m. on CST.

Inside #NOLAsTeam is a joint effort between New Orleans Athletics’ Privateers Sports Network and Bayou Video Productions. Executive producers are Julie Boudwin, Owner of Bayou Video Productions, Kelvin Queliz, Assistant Athletic Director for Marketing and Communications and Steve Stroud, Deputy Athletic Director, Chief Development and Revenue Officer.

“We talk about having great stories to tell, of our student-athletes, our coaches and staff and how we thrive in one of the world’s greatest cities,” said Stroud. “How we are truly New Orleans’ team and how our 50,000 alumni in the city should be proud of their Privateers. Inside #NOLAsTeam gives us a wonderful opportunity to tell those stories. We’re thankful to CST and Ochsner Health for helping to make it happen.”

“We prioritized compelling storytelling and it is an integral part of our strategic plan,” said Queliz. “We wanted to create a platform to highlight and promote all student-athletes and the on and off the court/field accomplishments of our 197 students, coaches and staff. Inside #NOLAsTeam allows us to tell human interest stories that go beyond the wins highlighted on our site.”

“CST is proud to partner with New Orleans Athletics, as UNO has long been a staple of Louisiana athletics,” said Jeff Brenner, Executive Producer of CST.

The debut show takes a look at the history behind Privateers Baseball with Hall of Famer Ron Maestri, LSU legend and current New Orleans head coach Blake Dean and UNO alum and current Tigers head coach Paul Mainieri, the athletic departments Privateers For Equality Plan, Sless’ Stars and the COVID-19 impact on the sudden cancellation of the 2019-20 women’s basketball record campaign.

“CST looks forward to this unique program with three of the top baseball minds in Louisiana,” said Brenner. “Southland Conference and New Orleans Athletics baseball has always been one of the top leagues/teams in the country and to see the past, the present and the future will be something fans of baseball in the state will not want to miss.”

In addition to premiering on CST, each episode will be made available online through the various social media channels and on YouTube (
