WWL-TV's Eric Paulsen
WWL-TV's Eric Paulsen, a longtime friend of Fats Domino who actually drove Fats in his own car to Jazz Fest years earlier, only to have Fats feel ill and decline to perform, was asked to introduce Davell Crawford for his tribute to Fats, and was happy to do it.  Eric tells the crowd that "Fats sends his love."
