While it didn’t appear like he had cancer by the way he looked on TV, he was in for a fight of his life. Well, he wasn’t the only one, who was fighting cancer at the same time for ESPN.
In October 2014, Shelley Smith announced that she had cancer, as well. She was fighting breast cancer and had to go through radiation for six months.
In April of this year, she announced that she’s basically cancer free. Her first assignment back with the World Wide Leader was covering Marcus Mariota from Hawaii as he was about to be drafted.
Fast forward to this morning, she finally announced that she’s done with the dreaded disease.
