TORONTO - Longtime CBC broadcaster Harry Neale is entering the Hockey Hall of Fame as the 2013 winner of the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award.

The award recognizes outstanding contributions as a hockey broadcaster.

Veteran hockey writer Jay Greenberg will join Neale in the Hall of Fame as this year's recipient of the Elmer Ferguson Award for excellence in hockey journalism.

A former NHL coach, Neale joined "Hockey Night in Canada" as an analyst in 1986, calling countless NHL games as well as two World Cups and three Olympics. He has spent the last six seasons as an analyst on Buffalo Sabres broadcasts.

Greenberg made his mark as a Philadelphia Flyers beat writer, but his 40-year writing career also includes stops at the Kansas City Star, Sports Illustrated, the Hockey News, Toronto Sun and New York Post.

Neale and Greenberg will receive their awards at a luncheon presentation in Toronto on Nov. 11.
