Mike Hoss was the first person I thought of when I saw Strief was gonna leave.

He would have been my first choice as well. I’ve had a few conversations with him and he is a very nice guy who strikes me as very professional. Given time I think he would grow into the role nicely.

I don’t see what interview questions have to do with being a play-by-play guy. He’s an experienced broadcaster with a good voice. He wouldn’t be my first choice but I have no problem giving him a shot.
He just didn’t seem well prepared for the interviews is all.
we will see how it shakes out.
I think Joel Meyers play by play for the pelicans is solid
It also depends upon how well they react with deuce in the booth

I think Mike Hoss is a good choice. The problem with Joel is that he would be extremely busy and possibly give up national broadcasts of NFL and Pelicans' games. He is one of the best play-by-play basketball announcers in the league, and we are lucky to have him call Pelicans' games. Another local, I think, play-by-play radio announcer is Sean Kelly. He has handled basketball, football, and baseball on a national level. How about thinking out side of the box and have a female announcer? There are others, but I would not mind Mike Hoss. I think he would be very good.

I love Mike Hoss! He was my choice when Jim Henderson left!!!!
What about the LSU guy, Chris Blair ? I am not familiar with Hoss or Myers. Regardless, they have to be better than the National guys.

Myers would be my first choice. But at least Hoss is a professional broadcaster. I personally would use a larger pool than WWL does.

You know the Tampa guy also does FSU games.

Jim Henderson was so many great things, but a great football voice he was not. Hoping we get someone in that chair who gets a person fired up for a freakin' football game.

Could not disagree with you more. Henderson's pre-game statement, particularly before the Super Bowl, made me want to suit up and play. Also, his quotes are timeless, i.e. "Hakeem drops the ball!", "It's good, it's good... , and the Saints are in the Superbowl" and "Get ready to party with the Lombardi, New Orleans!" I think you underestimate his talent and importance to the Saints and New Orleans. Once he stopped broadcasting, I stopped turning down the sound on my tv to sync up the radio with the action on the field. Zach was very good, and his effort was admirable, but he was hard to follow and very slow on a play-by-play basis.
