Vitale was away from the booth after being diagnosed with lymphoma in October. A few days ago, Vitale announced that his doctor gave him the green light to return to broadcasting after starting his 6 months of chemotherapy. In August, Vitale revealed he had melanoma surgically removed.
This is Vitale’s 43rd season at ESPN. Welcome back, Dickie V!
