Tracy Morgan Reveals the Emotional Reason He's Hosting the ESPYS 2019

Tracy Morgan is hosting the 2019 ESPYS for a personal reason.

The Last O.G. comedian revealed the reason he took the gig on Wednesday (July 10) in an interview with TSN.

“The main reason I really wanted to do it is the fight against cancer. I have an opportunity to fight their cause and I’m all in.”

If you didn’t know, Tracy‘s grandparents and former wife, Sabina, died of cancer.

The ESPYS raise funds for the V Foundation for Cancer Research, founded by ESPN and Jim Valvano.

“We’ll have a great time, but the most important thing is Jim Valvano. I’ll never forget watching him at the ESPYS. We forget sometimes the cause, we enjoy being there, but we got to understand the reason why we’re there. It’s an opportunity to give back. I’m in service to others.”
