New Orleans, La. -  The man who's been an iconic part of the Saints organization for over four decades has a key to the city.

New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu presented Jerry Romig with the honor Friday.

Romig stepped down from his position of PA announcer for Saints games at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome last month. He called 445 games. He never missed one home game in his 44 years of service.

Romig's son, Mark Romig, took over announcing duties for Saints games at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome when his father retired.
