He was 91, according to philly.com. His career touched parts of nine decades.
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.
Longtime broadcaster Tom Lamaine said Mr. Campbell was a perfectionist, and he remembered him fondly. They broadcast 76ers TV games from 1970 to 1976, a time when Mr. Campbell was battling Crohn's disease.
Lamaine recalled a late-season game in 1973 against Cleveland - a season in which the 76ers went 9-73. "Bill was broadcasting that game like it was Game 7 of the Finals," Lamaine said. "During a commercial break, I said, 'Bill, I can't believe the energy and pace you are giving this game.' And he says to me, 'If you lose the passion, get out of the game' - and that line stuck with me forever."
Mr. Campbell, who began his broadcast career in 1939, was sports director at Channel 10 and WCAU-AM, and he was featured on numerous radio stations, including WIP-AM and KYW-AM. He was in the industry so long that he once did a radio show with Connie Mack, then the Philadelphia Athletics manager.
