Former New Orleans Saints running back Deuce McAllister is joining FOX 8 to be the TV station's Saints analyst.
McAllister will take over from longtime New Orleans broadcaster Jim Henderson in the role. Henderson announced his retirement earlier this year.
“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, who will contribute to various newscasts and Saints-related shows.
“Deuce gives us a unique viewpoint when analyzing games,” said FOX 8 News Director Mikel Schaefer. “Deuce brings an inside the NFL huddle perspective. His knowledge and passion for the game will deliver special insight to our viewers.”
FOX 8 (WVUE-TV) is the television news partner of iHeartRadio New Orleans.
