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!
