Default Dick Vitale is Targeting Duke-UNC Game for Return to Broadcasting

ESPN's Dick Vitale, who had surgery to repair his vocal chords, plans to return to broadcasting games with the February 6th showdown between Duke and North Carolina
A scope and analysis of Vitale's throat by Dr. Steven Zeitels in Boston revealed that the broadcaster has recovered sufficiently after the removal of the non-cancerous lesions.

"I was in tears when he asked me to speak my first words since the surgery," Vitale wrote in a letter to fans. "Believe me, it was very difficult to go 3? weeks without speaking! When he had me count to 10, I was so relieved."

In memory of my brother Michael, who gave me my love of sports. I will miss you!
