Walt Frazier is going back to the Hall. The seven-time NBA All-Star and New York Knicks broadcast analyst is the recipient of the electronic 2022 Curt Gowdy Media Award, the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame announced Friday.

Frazier, 76, was inducted into the Hall as a player in 1987 after a career that spanned 12 years, including winning two NBA championships with the Knicks. He played for New York from 1967-1976, then was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Frazier was named an All-Star each year from 1970 through 1976.

The Knicks retired his number in 1979, shortly after he retired from playing. Frazier started up his television career in 1980, first broadcasting Atlanta Hawks games. He joined the Knicks' coverage in 1987, first on the radio, and has been nominated for multiple New York Emmy Awards.

Frazier broadcasts alongside Mike Breen, who received the Curt Gowdy award in 2020.

ESPN's Mechelle Voepel was named the 2022 Curt Gowdy Media Award Print recipient.
