Retired LSU announced Jim Hawthorne missing after flood


The state of Louisiana has been ravaged by massive and deadly flooding over the past few days and it has been tough on everyone in the state. It looks like it has hit close to home with the LSU Tigers after it was reported that former radio announcer Jim Hawthorne was missing.

LSU sports information director Michael Bonnette took to Twitter Sunday afternoon and asked if any one heard from Hawthorne. Ross Dellenger of The Advocate later took to Twitter and reported that members of the LSU media were asking for any help locating Hawthorne and his wife, Carol, who have both been missing since around 9 p.m. Saturday night.

Hawthorne retired from his post as the “Voice of the Tigers” in December after spending nearly 40 years calling football, basketball and baseball games for LSU. He was replaced by former Georgia Southern radio announcer Chris Blair.
