News Anchor, KTEN News at 5, 6, & 10 & Texoma CW News at 9 

Many KTEN viewers probably recognize Scott's name and face from his nearly 20 years anchoring news and weather at the ABC station in Dallas.

But what many folks don't know is that Scott's been involved in television all his life. Scott grew up in eastern Tennessee, where his father produced TV commercials and his mother starred in a locally produced version of Romper Room. In fact, Scott first appeared on Romper Room when he was just six weeks old.

In the early 1980's, Scott was Weekend Sports Anchor/Weekday Sports Reporter in Louisville, Kentucky. His time there included 10-hour long "live" shows from Churchill Downs for the Kentucky Derby.

Scott's next stop was back to his hometown of Knoxville, Tennessee, where he was the Main Weather Anchor, Sports Director/Anchor, backup News Anchor, PM Magazine co-host, Music video show host, and news reporter. Scott did it all!

But in June of 1985, Scott made it to the "big time" when he landed a top job in a Top 10 TV market. For almost 20 years, he anchored News, Weather, and Sports at WFAA-TV. Scott anchored every position, on every shift.

In addition, Scott co-created and hosted Good Morning Texas. He also hosted the Neiman Marcus Adolphus Christmas Parade (with coverage on over 300 stations), and hosted College Football Saturday on Southwest Sports Regional Network.

Scott has won three Emmy Awards, two Edward R Murrow awards, two D/FW Air Personality of the Year awards, and numerous other civic, charitable, and corporate awards during his time in Dallas.
