ESPN anchor Stuart Scott died Sunday morning after a long battle with cancer. He was just 49-years-old.
Hannah Storm broke the news on ESPN’s “SportsCenter.”
Scott, who helped launch ESPN2’s “SportsNight” in 1993, was known for his hysterical catchphrases “Boo-Yah!” and, “As cool as the other side of the pillow.”
“He didn’t just push the envelope,” sports radio host Dan Patrick told ESPN. “He bulldozed it.”
He had a talent and a style that “changed everything,” said ESPN President John Skipper.
At the ESPYS on July 16, Stuart accepted the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance.
“You beat cancer by how you live,” has become a rallying cry for millions of cancer patients and their families.
