Sports broadcaster, Craig Sager has passed at 65 years old.

The famous commentator known for his vibrant suit choices, has covered sports for TNT, TBS, CBS and CNN and has been working in the broadcasting industry since 1972.

He has been battling Leukemia since being diagnosed in 2014.

The New York Post quotes Turner president, David Levy with the following words:

“Craig Sager was a beloved member of the Turner family for more than three decades and he has been a true inspiration to all of us. There will never be another Craig Sager. His incredible talent, tireless work ethic and commitment to his craft took him all over the world covering sports. While he will be remembered fondly for his colorful attire and the TNT sideline interviews he conducted with NBA coaches and players, it’s the determination, grace and will to live he displayed during his battle with cancer that will be his lasting impact. Our thoughts and prayers are with Craig’s wife, Stacy, and the entire Sager family during this difficult time. We will forever be Sager Strong.”
