TNT’s Ernie Johnson Gives Emmy to Stuart Scott’s Daughters

Ernie Johnson sure is a class act.

On Tuesday night at the Sports Emmys, the TNT host gave his award for best studio host to the daughters of late ESPN anchor Stuart Scott, who lost his battle with cancer in January.

TNT’s Johnson knows a thing or two about fighting cancer. In 2006, he took a leave of absence during his battle with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. He later returned as host of the Emmy-winning show “NBA on TNT” alongside Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith.

Scott’s daughters attended the 36th Sports Emmys on behalf of their father, who was honored for his service and dedication to sports media.
