Longtime ESPN anchor Scott Van Pelt says he’s ‘OK’ following ‘medical scare’

ESPN sportscaster Scott Van Pelt said he will not be anchoring the Monday night broadcast of “SportsCenter” following the national championship game due to a medical issue.

Van Pelt tweeted during halftime of the College Football Playoff National Championship game between top-ranked Alabama and Georgia that he was OK and at home after experiencing what he termed a “medical scare” Monday afternoon. The scare, he said, was brought about because his “heart got a little out of whack” due to supraventricular tachycardia.

Supraventricular tachycardia is caused by an irregular or fast heartbeat.
