A veteran broadcaster with nearly four decades of experience in television and radio, Scott is the recipient of three Upper Midwest Regional Emmy awards for his news reporting in the Corridor. The Iowa Broadcast News Association has also recognized Scott for in-depth reporting.
No stranger to major, breaking news events Scott anchored live, local coverage of both the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995 and the 2001 terrorist attacks on New York, Washington and Pennsylvania. Scott also anchored live coverage of the Old Capitol Building fire in Iowa City in 2001 and the tornado that ravaged portions of that Johnson County community in 2006, the latter garnering Scott his first Emmy. His most recent Emmy Awards honor Scott's reporting on entrepreneurs in Iowa's Creative Corridor. His "Created in the Corridor" is a bi-weekly series featuring success stories of home-grown businesses and other local entrepreneurial initiatives.
Active in the community, Scott is a member of Hope Lutheran Church and serves on the Advisory Board for the Cedar Rapids Salvation Army. He also has been a longtime volunteer for the American Heart Association and several other organizations.
In his spare time Scott is an avid music lover and enjoys the local arts scene. His efforts in promoting, sponsoring and emceeing musical performances in the Corridor and beyond won Scott a 2014 Spirit Award from the Iowa Rock n Roll Music Association. Scott and his wife, Beckie, are blessed with six grown children and sixteen grandchildren and are proud to call Cedar Rapids home.
