KFGO broadcaster diagnosed with melanoma

FARGO - Longtime sports broadcaster Scott Miller of KFGO radio has been diagnosed with melanoma, a form of skin cancer.

Miller will maintain a work schedule on KFGO and 740 The Fan during his planned treatments and expects to be back in the broadcast booth for the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks home opener May 25, according to a news release from the station.

"The recommendation of the medical experts is that I dedicate my attention to treatment and recovery," Miller said. "This, of course, is something I won't take lightly and fully intend to follow their advice. I wanted to be upfront about my condition."

KFGO sports director Jack Michaels, the original RedHawks announcer, will handle play-by-play duties in the interim.

Miller has worked in the F-M media market for more than 20 years. The Minot, N.D., native was recently recognized by the Minnesota and Great Plains Associated Press for his call of the Football Championship Subdivision championship game between North Dakota State and Sam Houston State.
