ESPN’s Hannah Storm held back tears while breaking the news of Stuart Scott’s death on Sunday.
The veteran ESPN “SportsCenter” anchor died after a years-long battle with cancer, the network said Sunday. He was 49.
Scott was on the air for ESPN for 21 years and his anchoring included coverage of NFL and NBA games.
His diagnosis came in November 2007, and ESPN said Scott “went through several surgeries, chemotherapy, radiation and clinical trials to stay strong and ward off cancer for as long as humanly possible.”
