Jim Henderson (born July 29, 1947) is an American sportscaster based in New Orleans. He is the radio voice of the New Orleans Saints and also works as a football analyst for WVUE-DT. Before that, he worked for WWL-TV from May 1, 1978 to January 31, 2012.

Henderson began reporting on Little League baseball games in his native Rochester, New York. After receiving his bachelor's degree in English from the State University of New York at Cortland, Henderson went on to achieve a Masters in Radio and Television at Syracuse University.

Henderson began his sports reporting career with the sports director position at a Panama City station, then became a sports reporter in Atlanta. Henderson joined WWL-TV on May 1, 1978 when he was offered a job as a sportscaster, succeeding the retiring Lloyd "Hap" Glaudi. Henderson and news anchors Garland Robinette and Angela Hill and with Meteorologist Nash Roberts helped channel 4 become the dominant station in New Orleans, a position it holds to this day.

Henderson is a 13-time winner of the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association's Sportscaster of the Year Award, an award conferred by sports journalists from all over Louisiana. Henderson regularly traveled to the Super Bowl, The Masters, and the Major League Baseball All-Star Game because of his work as a reporter for CBS Newspath.

Henderson is currently the play-by-play announcer on Saints radio broadcasts, formerly teaming with former Saints quarterback Archie Manning. Henderson and Manning broadcast Saints games to listeners (and preseason TV viewers) from 1986 to 1997, with the exception of the 1990 season (when Henderson called regional NFL telecasts on CBS). Henderson went on to team with former Saints running back Hokie Gajan on the radio. Gajan pasted away last year and Deuce McAllister took over as the color analyst. Henderson was at the microphone for both of the Saints' NFC Championship Game appearances, in 2006 and 2009, as well as their appearance in Super Bowl XLIV.

In August 2012, six months after retiring from WWL, Henderson joined rival station WVUE-DT, owned by Saints owner Tom Benson, as an analyst and commentator for the Saints.

Henderson has residences in both Poplarville, Mississippi, and Mandeville, Louisiana. He is married and has two grown children.
