Craig Sager passed away on Thursday after a long battle with cancer, just days after being inducted into the Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame. Sager was 65 years old.

Turner Sports released a statement shortly after:

“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,” Turner president David Levy said. “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.”

Over the course of his long and incredibly arduous battle with leukemia, Sager’s relentless positivity and obvious affection for those around him was inspirational to many, and the warmth and generosity he showed over the course of his life and career before his illness were reflected back at him i his and his family’s time of need. We do reap what we sow, and Sager sowed seeds of kindness everywhere he went.
