Long-time SportsRadio 94WIP legendary radio host Howard Eskin will be inducted into the Philadelphia Sports Hall Of Fame this November.

"It's an honor to be selected and to be in such great company. Really overwhelming," Eskin told me on Monday. "They say do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life. As hard as I work, I have to admit, it is a labor of love."

Eskin, 71, joins former Phillies star Jimmy Rollins, boxing great Bernard Hopkins, Eagles kicker David Akers, Villanova basketball coach Rollie Massimino, St. Joe's basketball coach Phil Martelli, Temple fencing coach Nikki Franke, Flyers general manager Keith Allen, and Olympic gold medalist Penn rower Susan Francia as part of the 2022 class.
