In addition to being incredible at his job, Ernie Johnson is one of the truly good guys in sports. While being recognized for his talent last night, he once again showcased his enormous heart.
After winning the Sports Emmy for Outstanding Studio Host, Johnson graciously presented the award to Stuart Scott’s daughters.
There wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
Johnson, who is battling leukemia himself, was selfless enough to use his enormous moment to recognize the greatness of Scott, who passed away in January. The longtime ESPN star somehow went his entire career without winning an Emmy.
