Listen up, nitwits, morons, losers and dopes.

Howard Eskin has been named sports anchor at Fox 29.

The veteran sportscaster and 94 WIP weekend host starts Sept. 4 as sports anchor for Fox 29's 5, 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts as well as Fox 29 Sports Sunday and Game Day Live.

And just so you know, genius, Eskin will also contribute to Good Day Philadelphia, the station has announced.

Current sports anchor John Anderson will become a reporter/anchor on various newscasts.

Eskin worked for Fox 29 from 1986, when he helped launch the 10 p.m. newscast, to 1991. He most recently worked at NBC10 on Sunday night's Sports Final and also popped up on weekend sportscasts.

”I've been incredibly fortunate in my career, having had the opportunity to cover some of the most memorable games and athletes in Philadelphia," Eskin said this afternoon. "But, there is nothing like getting a chance to return to FOX 29, where my heart has always been."
