So sad to see Nick like that, he was a stud back in the day. What kind of cancer does he have?

Nick Charles, a Chicago native who became the first sports anchor at CNN, died today, the cable news station reported. He was 64.

Charles, who had been suffering from bladder cancer since 2009, died at his New Mexico home, according to CNN. He had been born Nicholas Charles Nickeas in Chicago in 1946 and, after graduating from Columbia College in Chicago, he started his sportscasting career in 1970 at WICS in Springfield, Ill.

RIP Nick Charles.

I remember when he came back and guest commentated a portion of a Showtime card not long ago. I didn't realize at that time that his cancer had been declared terminal, though it was apparent he was in a serious state. Guess it shows what the commentating gig meant to him to come back for one last go under such circumstances. In hindsight, it was nice to see that.
