Jim Henderson to retire, but will remain calling Saints games
 
Capping a nearly 34-year career as Louisiana's preeminent sportscaster and a local broadcasting icon, sports director Jim Henderson has announced his decision to retire from WWL-TV in February.

"All good things must come to an end, and for me, that's my career here at Channel 4 that has encompassed nearly 34 years," Henderson wrote in an email to his WWL colleagues.

Henderson said he intends to stay on as the radio play-by-play announcer for the New Orleans Saints, a job he has held since 1982, but will retire in February from his post at Channel 4.

Wow. I figured "Hondo" would be on wwl forever.

Happy that he will still call games but I will miss his commentaries on the news.

And IMO, he could have probably had a major network gig if he wanted.

Whew, I would be crushed if he stopped calling our games. I love our crew. Henderson & Gajun=Best radio broadcast pair ever!!!

All good things must come to end. The TV world just lost a great one. Love him or hate him Jim was always very good.

I can finally hear his radio calls on WWL online and I love it. So glad he's still going to do that.

Sad to see him step down. I've listened to Jim for most of my life. Glad he's still calling the games though, it just wouldn't be the same without him.
