Albom won the 2010 Red Smith Award, for lifetime achievement in sports journalism.

Welcome to SportsNation! On Thursday, longtime sports columnist Mitch Albom stops by to chat about his 30-year writing career, as well as his newest book, "The First Phone Call From Heaven" that hit stores Tuesday.

"First" is Albom's eighth book and he has sold more than 35 million copies of them worldwide, in 44 languages and in 48 territories. The fiction piece is a story about what happens when one little town, way up north, starts getting calls from souls in heaven. Who believes, who doesn't?

Albom, @MitchAlbom, has branched his career from journalist to screenwriter, playwright, radio host and musician. He has appeared regularly on ESPN's "The Sports Reporters" for 25 years and still writes for the Detroit Free Press.
