John Peterson Saunders (February 2, 1955 – August 10, 2016)

(AP) – ESPN announced today that sportscaster John Saunders, who has
hosted "The Sports Reporters" for the last 15 years, has died. A cause of
death was not announced.

Saunders joined ESPN in 1986. He did play-by-play on various sports, 
hosted NHL Stanley Cup Final coverage and World Series coverage
and hosted studio shows for baseball, college football and college
basketball.

Saunders took over as host of "The Sports Reporters," a Sunday

show that features three sports journalists volleying opinions on
the top sports news of the day.
