BATON ROUGE - At least four of Louisiana's former governors will watch Gov.-elect John Bel Edwards take the oath of office at his inauguration ceremony Monday.

Edwards spokesman Richard Carbo says outgoing Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal, who is term-limited, will attend the ceremony to watch his Democratic successor take over the job.

Carbo says former Govs. Edwin Edwards, Buddy Roemer and Kathleen Blanco also will be on hand at the event. Former Gov. Mike Foster's attendance is questionable because Carbo says the two-term Republican governor hasn't been feeling well.

Edwards outlined new details Thursday about his inaugural ceremony, announcing that LSU play-by-play announcer Jim Hawthorne will serve as the master of ceremonies.

Hawthorne just completed his last season broadcasting LSU football games and will retire after the men's basketball season.
