Some Fine Words of Reflection from the Departing Jim Henderson

There hasn't been a finer voice around. We will miss him on the television airwaves. He is still in the booth, thankfully.



Jim Henderson reflects on sports figures he covered, and colleagues he worked with | NOLA.com


Retiring WWL-TV sportscaster Jim Henderson engages in a bit of name association, sharing his parting impressions of some of the men and women he has covered and worked alongside during his 34-year sportscasting career.

He was pretty good. People liked him. He certainly saw the Saints from the not so good years to the so-so years to the unbelievable.

So he IS still going to do play-by-play on WWL, right????

sure hope so! I cant stand thinking about not hearing Jim Henderson's voice do Saints games. You can have a crap little radio in your truck
in my swamp in Texas, and if Jim Henderson is talking, I'm right there
with you guys.

Yes, still on Radio. But today is going to be a sad news day in Nola Sports. I grew up watching Henderson on WWL. He's all I know. Tonight's sports will be difficult to watch indeed.

Yeah, we're really going to miss him, but as long as he's doing Saints games on radio, I'm fine with it. He's earned this break from tv, just keep doing those games!
