ESPN honored the late Stuart Scott with a moving tribute at the network’s Television Critics Assn. panel on Wednesday in Pasadena.

“Stuart was an incredible person who inspired many and will be sorely missed,” an ESPN rep announced, before the network’s programming slate was presented by ESPN Films senior director of development Dan Silver and Eva Longoria, who is exec producing the cabler’s upcoming “Vs” short film documentary series, set to premiere in May.

“He’s a big reason why I even know what ESPN is,” Longoria said of Scott. “He made it pop culture.”

A video montage, which included on-set bloopers of the beloved “SportsCenter” anchor through the years, was presented to the room of reporters, in remembrance of the ESPN family’s great loss.

Scott died on Jan. 4 at a hospital in the Hartford, Conn., area after a seven-year battle with cancer. He was 49.
