Ernie Johnson explains why he gave Emmy to Scott’s daughters
TNT’s Ernie Johnson joined the show to talk about winning the sport emmy and giving it to Stuart Scott’s daughters.
Dan asked if Johnson, who is a cancer survivor, often talked to Scott about the disease. “We’d swap texts all the time,” Johnson said.
“My message to Stu was … you have cancer but it doesn’t have you,” Johnson said.
Johnson also told funny tales about the TNT set. He said Shaq comes up with all these ideas, like going to the bathroom with his mic on, and then saying “it’s gonna get a million hits on Youtube.”
