Ernie Johnson Wins Sports Emmy, Gives It To Stuart Scott's Daughters

When Stuart Scott passed away earlier this year from cancer, we lost a broadcasting legend. Fortunately, we've still got one in Ernie Johnson, who's had his own battles with cancer, among other struggles. But he has a tremendous amount of class, and it was on full display during the Sports Emmy Awards.

Johnson, who was nominated alongside Scott, Keith Olbermann, Bob Costas, Rich Eisen and Matt Vasgersian, won his third career Emmy for Outstanding Studio Host. But during his speech, he said there's only one place the award belongs: Stuart Scott's home. He called up Scott's daughters, Taelor and Sydni, and presented the award to them. Just a truly touching gesture by one of the best guys in sports.

    1. Thanks Rena! Definitely appreciate it. And yes! EJ is for sure one of the good guys in sports. Need more like him.
