Gast has worked for a myriad of Northshore radio stations in both programming and sales roles, and was the original brainchild behind the Cat Country format which launched on 98.9 in 2006. Gast has been with Cat Country for close to 9 years (with a brief break) and recently returned the station to its rightful place as the Northshore's Country Radio Leader. Outside of his work with Cat Country, Gast owns multiple Southeast Louisiana businesses and volunteers with multiple animal related charities. Gast lives with his other half Brandi and their four cats, ferret, cockatiels, budgies, snakes and mice. He literally has a zoo at home (and he worked at the Zoo for a while too!).
