Broadcaster Rich Eisen said a tearful goodbye to his friend and former ESPN colleague Stuart Scott on the NFL network on Sunday.
Scott, a 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.”
