CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina will honor late ESPN broadcaster and alumnus Stuart Scott as it kicks off the basketball season.

The school says it will induct Scott on Oct. 23 into the North Carolina Journalism Hall of Fame, which is based in the UNC School of Media and Journalism. Jones Angell, the radio play-by-play voice for Tar Heels sports, will emcee an induction ceremony that will include women’s soccer player Mia Hamm.

Afterward, the men’s basketball program will hold a tribute to Scott during its annual “Late Night With Roy” event, which marks the ceremonial start to the season. Scott first hosted the event in 2001 and did so 10 times.

Scott died in January after a lengthy fight with cancer.
