SAINTS HALL OF FAMER NOW A BIG EASY SPORTSCASTER

Former New Orleans Saints running back and Hall of Famer Deuce McAllister is joining Raycom’s WVUE in New Orleans, as the replacement for longtime sportscaster Jim Henderson.

“When Jim let us know he would retire at the end of the Saints 2017-18 season we knew we had big shoes to fill,” said Tim Ingram, Fox 8 vice president and general manager. Deuce was our first pick. He is a great fit for the FOX 8 team and we know he will deliver the level of in-depth Saints analysis fans want.”

McAllister will show up on pre and post game football shows along with the morning and the 5 p.m. newscasts during the football season.
