South Florida Broadcasting Legend Hank Goldberg Dead At 82

South Florida sports and talk radio legend Hank Goldberg died Monday following a long battle with chronic kidney disease. Goldberg was 82 years old. Known nationally for his horse racing prognostications, Goldberg covered the glory years of the Miami Dolphins in the 1970s alongside Rick Weaver and Henry Barrow.

Goldberg was a staple on local sports talk radio sparring with the Voice of the Miami Hurricanes Sonny Hirsch.

While hosting his own show on WIOD, fellow legend Neil Rogers changed Goldberg’s nickname from “The Hammer” to “The Humper.”

Goldberg made the move into television, covering sports for WTVJ and later, for ESPN.

Rest In Peace, Humper.
