    This is so COOL Dan McDonald receives prestigious service award

    NATCHITOCHES Incomparable New Orleans Saints play-by-play announcer and award-winning New Orleans television figure Jim Henderson joins Dan McDonald, whose multi-faceted career has won him national acclaim as a writer and sports publicist, as 2017 recipients of the Distinguished Service Award in Sports Journalism from the Louisiana Sports Writers Association.

    The ONLY thing preventing him from using Louisiana is the Morning Advocate.

    My first Dan McD story involves a fax when I was doing the QB club MC gig---I was meeting with him at the SID office and he was sending a fax---I didn't believe what it could do so he sent it and they returned a message---SHOCKED --still kinda didn't think it could do this!!! lol

    I don't understand, how could a paper prevent someone from saying something during a broadcast?

    I'm not referring to broadcasts but to published articles. Articles published in one paper are often edited when those same articles are published in another newspaper, and I have no doubt that broadcasters are given "guidance" on what they may or may not say. Whether they abide by the guidance they are given is a different story.

    I honestly can't recall Dan ever calling us Louisiana in a broadcast on in print. I'm sure he has, but all I ever remember is Louisiana Lafayette. Seems either the Sun Belt or a network or a newspaper prohibited using Louisiana to refer to us and, of course, he had to abide by their guidelines.
