Full Version: OT: Bill Campbell dies at 91
Eagles Forum > Philadelphia Eagles Message Board > Philadelphia Eagles or Football Related Discussion
Bill Campbell, a broadcaster who covered some of the greatest moments in Philadelphia sports history, died Monday at Cooper University Hospital in Camden. He was 91, and his career spanned nine decades. Mr. Campbell was a broadcaster for the Philadelphia Warriors/76ers, Phillies and Eagles. Among his most famous broadcasts: the Eagles' NFL championship win over Green Bay in 1960 at Franklin Field and Wilt Chamberlain's 100-point game for the Warriors - still an NBA record - in 1962.

To put it in perspective, Campbell was his era's Merrill Reese. He had been around the Philly sports world for what seems like forever.
RIP, Bill.
