Episode 28
54m | Jul 5, 2021

We know New Orleans Saints’ RT Ryan Ramczyk is staying put since the great news of his contract extension broke last week, but the team’s changes in 2021 aren’t limited to just the field. Broadcasting legend Mike Hoss is joining the fold as play-by-play radio broadcaster. 

On a new episode of Black and Gold Rush, Mike Hoss recounts his journey with host Rachel Jones - from his days at James Madison University wanting to be a professional golfer, then pivoting to broadcasting and eventually landing at WWL in 1989 after three previous jobs. At WWL, Hoss worked under Jim Henderson, the Voice of the Saints for more than 30 years, including during the team's run to Super Bowl XLIV. Hoss shares the many lessons he learned in his career to this point, his dreams of being a play-by-play announcer, and interviewing for the Saints role not once but twice.

So what can Saints fans expect from him and color analyst Deuce McAllister in the booth? And does Mike have a pump-up song picked out for game days? Don’t miss this conversation with the new Voice of the Saints - Mike Hoss!
