ESPN Anchor Stuart Scott Dies at 49 After Battling Cancer
It’s a sad day in sports. Longtime ESPN anchor Stuart Scott died on Sunday morning (January 4) at the age of 49.
The SportsCenter favorite reportedly battled cancer for a long time.
“ESPN and everyone in the sports world have lost a true friend and a uniquely inspirational figure in Stuart Scott,” ESPN president John Skipper said in a statement. “Who engages in mixed martial arts training in the midst of chemotherapy treatments? Who leaves a hospital procedure to return to the set?”
He continued, “His energetic and unwavering devotion to his family and to his work while fighting the battle of his life left us in awe, and he leaves a void that can never be replaced.”
Our thoughts go out to Stuart‘s family and friends during this difficult time.
