Watch: Ernie Johnson gives his Sports Emmy to Stuart Scott's daughters
Wednesday May 6th, 2015

TNT sportscaster Ernie Johnson won the Sports Emmy for Best Studio Host and gave his award to the daughters of the late Stuart Scott at Tuesday night's awards show.

Scott died at the age of 49 in January after a battle with cancer. He was a longtime SportsCenter anchor who was first diagnosed with the disease in 2007.

After Johnson, who is also a cancer survior, was announced as Best Studio Host, he called Taelor and Sydni Scott on stage to present them with the award in their father's honor, and the ladies spoke briefly, thanking Johnson and everyone in attendance for their love and support.

Scott was also honored at the Sports Emmys by SportsCenter anchors past and present, who gathered on stage to pay tribute to him.
