Popular ex-Saint McAllister joining game radio broadcasts
NEW ORLEANS - Former New Orleans Saints star running back Deuce McAllister is joining the radio broadcast for Saints games.
McAllister, whose appointment was announced by WWL radio on Wednesday, will serve as a color announcer alongside play-by-play announcer Jim Henderson.
McAllister, who remains the Saints' all-time leading rusher more than seven years after playing his final game in 2008, takes the seat in the booth formerly occupied by the late Hokie Gajan (GUY-jawn), who died in April.
Gajan was a popular LSU and Saints running back who enjoyed a long career in sports radio after his playing days.
In a statement released by WWL, McAllister calls it "an honor to follow someone so entrenched in the history and tradition of Saints football" as Gajan was.
