FARGO, N.D. - Fargo radio sportscaster Scott Miller has been diagnosed with melanoma, a form of skin cancer, according to officials at KFGO-AM, where Miller has worked since 2010.

The station announced that Miller, 54, will maintain a work schedule at KFGO while undergoing planned treatments. Miller will miss the RedHawks' opening road series May 17-23, but hopes to return to the booth in time for the home opener on May 25.

"The recommendation of the medical experts is that I dedicate my attention to treatment and recovery," Miller said in a KFGO release. "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."

In the interim, KFGO Sports Director Jack Michaels will handle RedHawks play-by-play duties. Michaels was the original RedHawks announcer.

Miller, also the voice of North Dakota State University football and basketball, said he expects to return to NDSU athletics in the fall.

Miller, a Minot native, announced University of North Dakota football and basketball games from 1992 to 1995. He moved to WDAY-AM in Fargo in 1996 to announce NDSU games.
