Longtime SportsCenter anchor Stuart Scott died Sunday after a battle with cancer, ESPN says.

Scott died at 49 after going through several surgeries, chemotherapy, radiation and clinical trials in his fight against cancer, the station said in a press release.

“ESPN and everyone in the sports world have lost a true friend and a uniquely inspirational figure in Stuart Scott,” said ESPN president John Skipper. “Who engages in mixed martial arts training in the midst of chemotherapy treatments? Who leaves a hospital procedure to return to the set? His energetic and unwavering devotion to his family and to his work while fighting the battle of his life left us in awe, and he leaves a void that can never be replaced.”

Scott is survived by his two daughters -- Taelor, 19, and Sydni, 15 -- and his girlfriend, Kristin Spodobalski.
