Dick Vitale announces new cancer diagnosis

Dick Vitale broadcast

Longtime ESPN college basketball broadcaster Dick Vitale faces a fourth cancer diagnosis since 2021, he said Friday, and will have neck surgery on Tuesday.

“My report on the Biopsy of the Lymph Node in my neck has arrived & it is cancerous,” the 85-year-old Vitale announced Friday afternoon on X while thanking his family and friends for their support.

After dealing with melanoma and lymphoma in 2021, Vitale announced he was cancer-free in 2022.

Last year, however, he underwent radiation treatment for vocal cord cancer, which postponed his return to ESPN. He has called games for the network since its founding in 1979, and was on its first college basketball broadcast, a win by DePaul over Wisconsin.
