ESPN Stuart Scott, 49, dies after year long battle with cancer

Stuart Scott was the sports broadcaster that an entire generation of aspiring broadcasters wanted to be.

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.”

On Sunday morning there was an immediate outpouring of love and grief from Scott’s longtime colleagues.

ESPN’s Rick Reilly wrote on Twitter that he was heartbroken: Scott “lived with such panache. He battled his disease with such dignity. Unforgettable man.”

Afternoon “SportsCenter” host Linda Cohn wrote, “I can’t believe he is gone. There was nobody like Stuart Scott, There will never be again. A big presence with even a bigger heart.”
