Scott Gleeson - November 2022
Famed college basketball announcer Dick Vitale returned to the mic this week after missing most of last season due to cancer treatment. Diagnosed with melanoma and lymphoma, he continued to work through treatment at the start of last season, but had to stop when he lost his signature voice.
He officially went into remission over the summer, and has spent the last few months resting so that he could return to ESPN for the start of this season. "I can’t wait to get back, to be honest with you, it’s going to energize me even more," said Vitale. "ESPN will have me start slow, one game a week, then maybe two later on so I can be there throughout the season. I’ve already won my national championship by getting cancer free. Everything else I do now will be a victory on top."
