The sports media world lost a good Monday with the passing of longtime reporter and ESPN personality Hank Goldberg.

Goldberg was a staple in the horse racing and NFL community. And the Miami Dolphins paid tribute to their former radio voice.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Hank Goldberg, our former radio analyst and a South Florida sports fixture," the Dolphins tweeted.

Goldberg began his career in Miami, where he earned the nickname

"Hamarin' Hank" for his gavel slams when he disagreed with a guest or caller.

He became the color analyst for the Dolphins from 1978–1992 and built great relationships with the late Don Shula and Hall of Fame quarterback Bob Griese.

Goldberg transitioned to ESPN after the launch of ESPN 2 in 1993, where he appeared on "NFL Countdown" and would contribute picks,

as well as analyze horse racing on "SportsCenter".

Beloved of almost everyone he meets, he will surely be missed.
