Jan. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Jim Huber, an Emmy Award-winning sports broadcaster and essayist, has died at age 67.

Huber died yesterday in Atlanta, though the cause of his death was not disclosed in a statement released by Time Warner Inc.’s Turner Broadcasting. He recently was diagnosed with acute leukemia.

“A terrific Emmy Award-winning journalist and essayist, Jim made so many contributions during his more than 27 years with our company,” David Levy, Turner’s president of sales, distribution and sports, said in a statement.

Huber was an anchor for CNN/Sports Illustrated until joining Turner Sports full-time in 2000, expanding his role as an announcer for both golf and National Basketball Association coverage.

Huber was born August 28, 1944, and attended Presbyterian College in Clinton, South Carolina.

He won an Emmy for his writing of an essay on the Olympic Park bombing during the Atlanta Games in 1996.

Huber is survived by his wife, Carol, and son, Matt.
