Philadelphia Sports Radio Legend Banned from MLB Stadium for Unwanted Kiss on Female Employee – Yet Remains On Air

Philadelphia sports radio legend Howard Eskin has been banned from the Phillies ballpark after making an unwanted advance towards a female employee.

Eskin, 73, was accused of giving an unnamed Aramark employee an ‘unwelcome kiss’ in May, sparking an investigation that has now resulted in his suspension.

The Philadelphia Inquirer report that the incident occurred before a game in the CP Rankin Club, an exclusive seating area behind home plate.

Eskin is alleged to have tried to kiss the woman as she backed away, and she then submitted a complaint to management.

Surprisingly, Eskin is expected to remain on air and there are no plans to pull his radio show from the schedule despite him not being allowed in the ballpark for the remainder of the season.

In a statement, Aramark confirmed to the media that one of its employees ‘had been subjected to an unwanted advance by an Audacy employee.’

Eskin did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Tuesday.

The Phillies also released a statement, which reads: ‘We cooperated with our partners at Audacy and Aramark on their investigations. We support Audacy’s decision to suspend Howard Eskin from Citizens Bank Park.’

Eskin has hosted a sports radio show in the Philadelphia area since 1986, and become known in the 90s for calling listeners either a ‘dope’ or a ‘genius’ depending on whether he agreed with their opinions.

He has appeared as a sideline reporter for the Eagles and regularly broadcasts Phillies games as part of his role for WIP.

Just last week, Eskin was in Sea Isle City with Jason Kelce to support the former center’s Beach Bash fundraiser.

Eskin hosts a two-hour radio show on Saturday mornings and that is expected to continue as usual, although the Inquirer reports he will be off-air this coming week due to an unrelated matter.

It has been business as usual in recent days though, with Eskin appearing on air on Tuesday morning as part of a segment in the lunchtime show.
