Nick Charles, a Chicago native who became the first sports anchor at CNN, died today, the cable news station reported. He was 64.

Charles, who had been suffering from bladder cancer since 2009, died at his New Mexico home, according to CNN. He had been born Nicholas Charles Nickeas in Chicago in 1946 and, after graduating from Columbia College in Chicago, he started his sportscasting career in 1970 at WICS in Springfield, Ill.

He later worked at stations in Baltimore and Washington before joining CNN on June 1, 1980.

RIP. It was great seeing him on HBO a few months ago. You could tell the way people were responding to him that he was genuinely a good man.

Thank God he lived every last one of those days with pride, and he never stopped enjoying life. The stories I read about him spending time with his family and the things he did in those last months were honorable. He was a great man, and it's sad to see him go. RIP Nick Charles.
