Stuart Scott and the rise of the urban sports broadcaster

Stuart Scott and the rise of the urban sports broadcaster
stuart-scott-and-the-rise-of-the-urban-sports-broadcaster


With a host of catchphrases and a boisterous http://www.officialphilliesproshop.com/WOMENS-CARLOS-RUIZ-JERSEY.html energy that revealed a love of the games he covered, Scott became a popular fixture on the sports network and a defining voice for a generation of fans. Following his passing, after a seven-year struggle with cancer, sports stars, politicians, celebrities and fellow journalists weighed in with a torrent of praise for Scott and his legacy. President Barack Obama said that he would miss Scott. "Twenty years ago, Stu helped usher in a new way to talk about our favourite teams and the day's best plays," he said in a statement. "For much of those 20 years, public service and campaigns have kept me from my family - but wherever I went, I could flip on the TV and Stu and his colleagues on SportsCenter were there." Basketball star LeBron James wrote on Instagram that Scott was a "genuine cool person". "What you did for our culture, bringing that Swag to reporting can only be copied (I hear it today on TV watching sports)," he wrote. "Thank you so much for being you and giving us inner city kids someone we could relate to that wasn't a player but was close enough to them." Stuart Scott interviews Tim Duncan following the 2014 NBA championship series. The important role Scott played in mainstreaming "urban" sports style was echoed by another high-profile athlete, NFL's Keyshawn Johnson, in an interview with ESPN. "Looking at him, knowing that he was able to bring that hip-hop culture, that urban feel, to television sports broadcasting, something that's never been done before, gave me the hope that I didn't have to be some corporate guy in a white shirt and red tie and sit there and talk a certain way," Johnson said. It wasn't just black athletes who expressed Chase Utley Phillies Jersey gratitude for Scott's efforts, however. His influence was more directly felt by black sports journalists who came after him - such as Jason Whitlock, LZ Granderson and JA Andade. Their words following Scott's death were some of the most poignant. "It takes courage and conviction to be different inside a large corporation," writes Whitlock, who built a national audience at ESPN but often clashed with the network's management. "Stuart Scott didn't want to sound like everyone else on television. He didn't want to appeal to the same audience. He wanted to be unique, a voice for a generation marching to its own beat. Mission accomplished." He writes that Scott was "polarising, authentic, must-see, fun, passionate and supremely talented" - the "leader young broadcasters follow". Granderson says Scott revolutionised the way broadcast sports journalism was practised, calling him a "game changer". ESPYs - an ESPN-run awards ceremony that celebrates the kind of fusion of sports and popular culture for which Scott was a trailblazer. "When you die, it does not mean that you http://www.officialphilliesproshop.com/WOMENS-DARREN-DAULTON-JERSEY.html lose to cancer," Scott said during his acceptance speech. "You beat cancer by how you live, why you live and in the manner in which you live."
