According to Ross Dellenger with The Advocate, LSU is getting closer to naming a new play-by-play radio broadcaster that will replace long time announcer Jim Hawthorne who is retiring after the 2015-16 basketball season.

Charles Hanagriff, Patrick Wright, Lyn Rollins, Sean Kelly and Patrick Netherton made the cut of semifinalists for the job to replace Jim Hawthorne. A source with knowledge of the search process revealed the five local candidates, but declined to reveal others.

There are as many as four national candidates in the mix who, along with aforementioned five, will be interviewed next week by a small selection committee, the source said. The school is still on track to make a decision by the end of the summer.

I find it hard to believe some of these are TRULY better than the 110+ other people that applied for the job ..

Charlie H doesn't have the personality, or voice, for all sports. Great guy but not the best candidate.

Hanny would be great for Baseball. He's paid his dues and brings LSU history knowledge along with a very solid current knowledge. I don't want him for football for the simple fact that it might not allow him to do the post game

The end of summer is still almost 4 months away. I wouldn't necessarily call that close.
