Hall of fame broadcaster Bill Campbell, has shared his voice, descriptions and face with the sports fans of Philadelphia.

Bill has broadcasted games for the Philadelphia Eagles, Warriors, Sixers, and Phillies. Through it all no one has seen more pain, and glory among Philadelphia sports than Bill Campbell. He was there for the Phillies incredible collapse in 1964, the Sixers record setting 9 win and 73 loss season in 1972-1973, along with the 1960 NFL championship game, the last championship won by the Philadelphia Eagles, and Wilt Chamberlain's 100 point game, a record that still stands today. In 2005, Bill received the ultimate broadcasting honor, when he was awarded the Gowdy media award, and was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame. Along the way, Bill has been named Broadcaster of the Year by the National Sports Broadcasters Association and received the Philadelphia Sportswriters Award for Outstanding service in 1989.
