Ok so If you know me personally, you know that I am a huge LSU Tigers fan!  Being in radio all of my life I have also been a big fan of Jim Hawthorne who is the voice of the LSU Tigers.

I love listening to him call the football, basketball and baseball games which he has done for years now.  Just his voice makes you get excited.

LSU Sports tweeted just now that Jim Hawthorne will retire in 2016.  I am completely devastated!  It is not going to be the same not hearing Jim's iconic voice on the air.

Jim Hawthorne has been the "Voice of the Tigers” for 32 years now. Jim is a Anacoco, La., native.
