Howard Eskin Career
Eskin eventually made a name for himself in sports radio by breaking stories and stirring public opinion with his commentaries. He brought that same hustle with him to television where, with his efforts, breaking news was often found on the sports desk. The award-winning sportscaster first made the transition to television in 1982 when he joined KYW-TV. One of Eskin’s managers at KYW jokes that the sportscaster kept the Eagles in Philadelphia by breaking the story in the 1980s that the owner was trying to sell the team. “If Howard had not stepped in when he did… Leonard Tose would have snuck the Eagles out of town,” says Frank Traynor. “Howard broke the Eagles story… and, by doing so, I believe helped to keep the team in town.”
