How did Hank Goldenberg die?
Hank Goldberg, a legend of South Florida sports radio and television, died on Monday, his 82nd birthday, at his home in Las Vegas. His confidence earned him the moniker “Hammerin’ Hank” and helped launch him to national prominence as a reporter and prognosticator, most recently with CBS Sports HQ and SportsLine, as well as for years on ESPN. Goldberg hosted or co-hosted a very well talk radio call-in show in Southern Florida for 30 years (1978–2007).
Goldberg, widely recognized as “Hammering” Hank, worked for ESPN for 20 years, making predictions for both horse racing and NFL games. Goldberg was also a well-known personality in Miami, where he spent more than 25 years as a Television and radio host, including serving as an advisor for Miami Dolphins games.
He became well-known thanks to his profession as a sports radio and television presenter, but little is known about his personal life, particularly his wife and children. As a result, he decided to maintain a low profile.
At age 81, he has faced many problems in his battle against chronic kidney disease in recent years. Goldberg has received four hours of dialysis three days a week for the past five years since he is too old to be eligible for a kidney transplant. On his 82nd birthday, Hank Goldberg passed away. The veteran broadcaster died on Monday (04.07.22) after a “long struggle with kidney disease” and had reportedly undergone a limb amputation towards the end of 2021. He was best known for his longtime position as an ESPN NFL reporter and his skills to handicap games.
Due to disease-related complications, Goldberg had a below-the-knee amputation of his right leg on October 29 at University Medical Center. Yet, Goldberg’s positive outlook on life, sense of fun, and enthusiasm for writing and sports betting have not been affected by the surgery. He spoke about the NFL playoffs on Thursday’s “Daily Wager” episode of ESPN. I’ve never suffered depression, he said. “I had to take a test to evaluate my attitude and memory, and I’ve always had a good memory. I have several tales to share. Before his current struggles, Goldberg had, in many ways, a charming lifestyle.

I listened to Hank Goldberg a lot when he was on the air. Over the years , he became increasingly snide and dismissive to fans and callers, which turned me off. His suffering is over—RIP.
