WVUE Hires New Orleans Saints Player to Replace Longtime Sportscaster

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

WVUE, the Raycom station in New Orleans, has named a replacement for longtime sportscaster Jim Henderson.

Former New Orleans Saints running back and Hall of Famer Deuce McAllister will join the station as a football analyst.

“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.”

“This is a great opportunity for me to continue my off-the-field career in sports and I’m looking forward to working with Juan Kincaid and the outstanding team at Fox 8,” said McAllister.

McAllister will make a variety of appearances on pre- and postgame football programs along with the morning and the 5 p.m. show during the football season.
