Jim Henderson Retiring as WWL Sports Director

Jim Henderson is retiring as sports director at WWL after a nearly 34-year career covering Louisiana sports.

“All good things must come to an end, and for me, that’s my career here at Channel 4,” Henderson wrote in an email to WWL staff this week. “If the Saints go to the Super Bowl, I will make that my last assignment here. Otherwise it’s time to turn the page on the next chapter of life.”

Henderson plans to retire from WWL in February.  He will continue as the radio play-by-play announcer for the Saints.

Henderson began his sportscasting career in Panama City, FL. After a stop in Atlanta, he joined the WWL in 1978. He has been the radio voice of the Saints since 1986.

In 2011, Henderson received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Press Club of New Orleans.

“I have the best job in the world, but, my responsibility is not to the coaches and players, but to the people who make sports special: the fans,” Henderson once remarked, ” and Louisiana sports fans are dedicated, they expect the best from everybody, from players to reporters.”
