Stuart Scott, whose smooth delivery and trademark catchphrases made him one of the most well-known sports anchors in history, has died after a long battle with cancer. He was 49. ESPN announced Scott's death Sunday morning. Scott's death came following a long absence from ESPN, where he emerged during the network's 1990s heyday as one of its most prominent and marketable anchors. He was one of the network's longest-tenured on-air personalities, having stayed — and flourished — long after former co-workers such as Dan Patrick, Rich Eisen and Keith Olbermann left.
