The Chirp: Craig Sager (1951-2016)

Longtime NBA broadcaster Craig Sager died on Thursday at the age of 65 following a long battle with acute myeloid leukemia. In a career that spanned five decades, the affable reporter, who was known for his colorful sport coats, covered everything from the NBA Finals to Hank Aaron’s 715th home run. On Tuesday, he was inducted into the Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame.

Former and current athletes, as well as a few celebrities, took to social media to express their sadness over Sager’s passing.
