ATLANTA (AP) -- Broadcaster Nick Charles, who became CNN's first
sports anchor, has died after a two-year fight with bladder cancer.
He was 64.

The Atlanta-based cable network said Charles died in Santa Fe,
N.M. He had been with the network from its beginning in 1980.

CNN Worldwide president Jim Walton said Saturday Charles helped
put CNN on the map with his intelligence, style and passion.

Walton said in a statement that his passing is a loss to CNN, to
the sports world and to fans and friends everywhere.
