TNT sports host Ernie Johnson won the Sports Emmy for “Best Studio Host” this week. But instead of keeping it, he gave it to Taelor and Syndi Scott, the two daughters of the late Stuart Scott. Scott, who was also nominated for the award, lost his battle with cancer in January. He was 49. Johnson was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2003 but his cancer has been in remission since 2006.
At the podium, Johnson said: “there is only one place it belongs and that is on the mantle of Stuart Scott’s house,” before asking Scott’s two daughters to come to the stage.
