He got his start in TV news at his hometown NBC station, working as a reporter, producer, and anchor. Some of his most memorable assignments there include going on a Big Sky Honor Flight with World War II veterans to Washington, D.C.; a rockslide that shut down the Beartooth Highway, the famous scenic road to Yellowstone National Park; and a colorful four-way U.S. Senate race. He has also anchored for stations in Florida, Louisiana, and Utah.

Scott graduated from Wheaton College in the west suburbs of Chicago, playing on the ice hockey club team and several intramural teams, as well as singing in the Men's Glee Club.
