Stuart Scott’s ESPN colleague Hannah Storm had the tough job of reporting his death this morning to the network’s audience.

She did so through tears, saying “I have some very sad news to report to you this morning.”

Scott died at 49 after a seven-year battle with cancer, ESPN said today.

“Today we choose not to say that Stuart lost to cancer at the age of 49. Instead, we’ll simply say we all lost Stuart.”
