The CBC Sports Hall of Fame announced Monday that Dick Irvin, Gordon Craig, Tom Fisk, Bob Moir and Fred Walker have been selected for induction this November.
"We are proud to honour these five outstanding individuals and are looking forward to welcoming them as members of the CBC Sports Hall of Fame," said Scott Moore, executive director of CBC Sports.
"They each represent many different facets of the business — producer, cameraman, play-by-play and colour announcer, radio host, executive director — and their contributions to sports broadcasting are countless."
Irvin, a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame, was one of the longest-serving members of Hockey Night in Canada, having joined CBC in 1966 as a colour commentator for Montreal Canadiens games with Danny Gallivan.
Regarded as one of the best hockey broadcasters ever, Irvin penned five books and retired from broadcasting in 1999.
Gordon Craig was a former head of CBC Sports, and was in charge of the department during the landmark broadcast of the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal.
Fisk, a popular cameraman with CBC Sports, worked on 27 Grey Cups, 14 Stanley Cup Finals and eight Olympic Games during his 34 years at the network.
Moir was a former host and play-by-play commentator for the CFL on CBC for more than 25 years. Moir's most defining moment came alongside the late Don Wittman during the terrorist tragedy at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich, when both men snuck into the athletes village posing as team doctors and reported live back to Canada as the tragedy unfolded.
Walker is best known for his career in sports broadcasting, covering both amateur and professional sports, including the Olympic Games, Pan-American Games and Commonwealth Games.
These five inductees join seven broadcast legends who were part of the inaugural induction class last year: Don Wittman, Foster Hewitt, George Retzlaff, Joan Mead, Ted Reynolds, Ernie Afaganis and Geoeff Gowan.
