RedHawks Broadcaster Scott Miller Diagnosed With Melanoma

FARGO, N.D. - Long-time Fargo sports broadcaster Scott Miller has been diagnosed with melanoma, a form of skin cancer. Despite planned treatments, Miller will maintain a work schedule at 790 KFGO and 740 The Fan, the flagship station of the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks. Miller hopes to return to the broadcast booth in time for the RedHawks home opener on May 25.

 

"The recommendation of the medical experts is that I dedicate my attention to treatment and recovery," said Miller. "This of course is something I won't take lightly and fully intend to follow their advice. I wanted to be upfront about my condition."

 

In the interim, KFGO Sports Director Jack Michaels will handle RedHawks play-by-play duties. Michaels was the original RedHawks announcer.

 

Miller, also the voice of NDSU Bison football and basketball, said he expects to return to NDSU athletics in the fall.

 

Miller, a Minot native, has worked in Fargo-Moorhead media for more than 20 years. He's an accomplished and seasoned radio sports veteran with a string of broadcast excellence awards. Miller's achievements include Sports Broadcaster of the Year on two occasions from The National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association and numerous "Teddy" awards from the North Dakota Broadcasters Association.

 

Most recently, Miller was recognized by the Minnesota and Great Plains Associated Press for his call of the FCS Football Championship game between North Dakota State and Sam Houston State. The six-state Northwest Broadcast News Association also presented Miller with an Eric Sevareid Award at the Midwest Journalism Conference held in Bloomington, Minn. in April.
