Tragically, Stuart Scott, longtime ESPN sports anchor, died this morning at the age of 49, after a long battle with cancer. Scott re-defined broadcast sports journalism with his fusion of consummate professionalism with swagger, trademark catchphrases and an ethos that embodied the Hip-Hop generation. We send our deepest condolences to his family, friends and legions of fans. He will be terribly missed. Here’s a video tribute to the lost icon by ESPN.
