Mike Hoss is named play-by-play announcer for the New Orleans Saints game day broadcasts on WWL-AM & FM, the flagship station of the team. He'll join color analyst and Saints all-time leading rusher Deuce McAllister in the booth. In addition to calling Saints games, Hoss will co-host WWL ancillary programming "The Saints Coaches Show," "The Saints GM Show" and "Fans & the Pro Fridays" alongside McAllister.

"When we started our search for the new ‘Voice of the Saints,' the goal was not only professional play-by-play, but also someone with a deep connection to the team, the Saints amazing fan base and our community," said Audacy New Orleans Senior Vice President and Market Manager Kevin Cassidy. "Mike checks all the boxes. His extensive experience covering the team both on and off the field has allowed him to paint a front-row picture for fans over the course of his career, and we trust his knowledge will enhance our coverage on game days."

"This is the thrill of a lifetime," added Hoss. "There are only 32 people in the world who get the privilege and the honor. I can't wait to sit in that booth with Saints legend Deuce McAllister. I know how passionate Saints fans are about their team. Deuce and I share that passion and intend to deliver the best game day experience possible and amp up our engagement with them across all platforms."

Hoss will also make regular appearances on the station's afternoon show "Sports Talk with Bobby Hebert & Kristian Garic," beginning with Saints Training Camp broadcasts on July 27. He succeeds former play-by-play announcer Zach Strief, who returned to the team as an assistant offensive line coach in February.
