Scott joined the WIFR team as the Sports Director in 2012.
As a Glenview native, Scott is happy to be back in Illinois covering the teams he grew up watching. Scott comes to Rockford from Grand Forks, North Dakota where he was the assistant sports director at WDAZ.
While working at WDAZ he was named the state sportscaster of the year by the North Dakota Broadcasters Association.
Scott is a proud graduate of the SI Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. While at Syracuse he worked as the sports director of CitrusTV and as the bureau chief of the ESPNU Campus Connection group. He was also the executive producer of ‘Cuse Countdown, a thirty minute preview show for Syracuse athletics. In 2009 his show was nominated for a college Emmy award.
He interned at WDJT-TV in Milwaukee and ESPN1000.
After being raised by a family of Illini fans and spending four years in Syracuse, Scott is reasonably certain that he actually bleeds Orange. He is also a Bulls, Blackhawks, Bears, White Sox, Marlins and Jaguars fan.
Scott is always looking for the stories about teams and individual athletes that make sports special. If you have any story ideas please e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
