Scot has been in radio since 1989, when he began his career at KWCS in Wise County, Texas. As it is at all small market radio stations, he not only co-hosted the morning show, he also covered news stories, sold ads, and, as a former Texas high school football player, began his sports broadcasting career on the play-by-play mic for the local version of Friday Night Lights.
By 1992, Scot had moved up to the Texas State Network, to this day the largest statewide radio network in the country, and it’s flagship station, KRLD, in Dallas. Originally hired to host ag programming, his passion for sports, particularly high school football, was quickly recognized by Craig Way, Sports Director at KRLD and widely regarded as THE high school football guru in Texas. It was Way, now the Voice of the Texas Longhorns, who asked Scot to join the KRLD/TSN sports team.
Over the next 20 years, Scot covered the Dallas Cowboys (including Super Bowl 30 in Tempe), the Texas Rangers, Dallas Mavericks, Dallas Stars, the Southwest and Big 12 Conferences, and was on the mic for hundreds of high school football, basketball, baseball, and softball broadcasts.
After a 2 year stint at Marconi Award winning Sportsradio 96.7 and 1310 The Ticket hosting weekend programming, Scot and his co-host Matt McLearin, took their talk show to JOX-FM in Birmingham, Alabama, where they dove headfirst into the madness that is Alabama, Auburn, and SEC football.
Since 2016, Scot has leaned on his radio experience in the marketing and public relations world. Growing up in Texas, Scot was a multi-sport athlete, playing football, basketball, baseball, soccer, and golf, even some track and field. He and his wife, Anita, a Santa Rita High School and U of A grad, moved to Tucson in 2021. They have two grown children and are also proud dog parents to Ursula and Bruiser (aka Fight Club).”
