Longtime ESPN anchor Stuart Scott passed away on Sunday morning after succumbing to cancer at 49 years of age. Hannah Storm broke the news while trying to not break out in tears…

Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless remembered the legendary sportscaster on ESPN First Take earlier today.

''When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live.”
— Stuart Scott, from his 2014 ESPY Awards speech


The biggest names in sports, and a notable sports fan living in the White House, tweeted their condolences upon learning of Scott’s death.


Scott debuted on ESPN in September 1993 sitting alongside co-host Craig Kilborn. As he notes in the following video, he looked good even in his padded-shoulder suit fronting a pastel-colored set.

Bon voyage, Stuart. You will be missed.
