Longtime SportsRadio 94WIP radio host Howard Eskin (pictured) will be inducted into the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame on November 3. Eskin 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, Philadelphia Flyers general manager Keith Allen and Olympic gold medalist Penn rower Susan Francia as part of the 2022 class.

"It's an honor to be selected and to be in such great company. Really overwhelming," said Eskin. "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."

"Congratulations to our own Howard Eskin on being named to the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame," added Audacy Philadelphia Senior Vice President and Market Manager David Yadgaroff. "Few have made as much of an impression on this city's sports media scene as Howard has, and this distinguished honor is a true testament of his outstanding career."

Eskin joined The Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame in 2007, The Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia Hall of Fame in 2011, and the Philadelphia Jewish Sports Hall of Fame in 2014. A graduate of Northeast High School, Eskin recently celebrated 35 years at SportsRadio 94WIP.

Additionally, morning co-host Al Morganti will be honored by the Hockey Hall of Fame and receive the Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award for excellence in hockey journalism. Recipients of this award, as selected by their respective associations, are recognized by the Hockey Hall of Fame as "Media Honorees" and selected by the Hockey Hall of Fame Selection Committee. Morganti will be honored at the "Hockey Hall of Fame NHL Media Awards Luncheon" in Toronto on November 14, and his award plaques will be displayed in the Esso Great Hall at the Hockey Hall of Fame alongside past award recipients.

"It's the honor of a lifetime to be inducted in the Hockey Hall of Fame, and a huge part of any success I have had is because of the fans of Philadelphia," said Morganti. "Having been on WIP for so many years and working at the Philadelphia Inquirer, I can attest that the emotional investment Philadelphia fans make to their teams makes everyone raise their game."

"This is an incredible accomplishment for one of the most respected hockey minds in Philadelphia," added Yadgaroff. "On behalf of everyone at Audacy, congrats to Al on this amazing honor. We are all very proud of you."

A graduate of the Boston University College of Communication, Morganti began his journalism career at The Boston Globe. His voice and passion for hockey led to beat writer jobs at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, covering the Calgary Flames and The Philadelphia Inquirer, covering the Flyers. Aside from his role as morning show co-host on WIP, Morganti also provides pre- and post-game analysis for NBC Sports in Philadelphia and has covered international sporting events around the world.
