Scott is in his 21st year of Billings television coverage, anchoring Q2's 5:30 and 10:00 p.m. sportscasts Monday through Friday.
A Billings native, Scott enjoyed his early years playing driveway hoops and on the Little League diamond. He graduated from West High eager to major in Physical Therapy, but after two years at the University of Oklahoma, a friend in Spanish class convinced him to change his major to Broadcast Journalism. Completely unaware the major even existed, he decided gamble. Scott graduated in 1992 as an award-winning journalism student earning a BA in Radio-TV-Film, highlighted by scholarships from both OU and Oklahoma's Associated Press. He was also active in the press box and on sidelines with Oklahoma's TV and radio coverage. Additionally, one of his great thrills was managing OU's basketball Sooners under coach Billy Tubbs. One fast-break year offered amazing inside knowledge to major college athletics.
Upon graduation, Scott was hired by NBC affiliate KULR in Billings to anchor weekend sports and report news. He eventually transitioned to full-time sports during a 13-year career there. His true appreciation continues to be featuring local teams and athletes, whether state championships or diamond-in-the-rough stories. Between KULR & Q2, Scott has also been fortunate to cover the Super Bowl, World Series, MLB All-Star game, NBA Finals, NBA Conference Finals, The Masters, Ryder Cup, several NCAA Basketball Tournaments, five NCAA Football Championship games, two NAIA Football Championships and 17 National Finals Rodeos, all in person. In 1998 Billings golfer Leslie Spalding invited Scott to caddy at the LPGA's British Open. She qualified as an alternate and finished sixth in one of her top career performances.
Scott is an 11-time winner at the Montana Broadcaster Awards, including TV Sportscaster of the Year. He spends ‘free time' trying to keep up with his wife and two young kids, who giggle from sport to sport.
