You can watch Scott Adkins every Saturday morning anchoring WAVE 3 News Sunrise, beginning at 5 a.m. He also reports live in the field for Sunrise on Friday mornings and for evening newscasts on WAVE 3 throughout the rest of the week.
Scott is active in the community and enjoys visiting classrooms across the metro during Read Across America. He spends the holidays supporting the Salvation Army's Angel Tree. Scott has also been tapped to emcee pageants awarding scholarships, but he'll admit he's not the most qualified pageant judge.
His arrival to Louisville in 2011 brought him closer to home. Scott grew up in the small town of Whiteland, IN just north along Interstate 65. That's where he realized in the sixth grade that he wanted to do something in television broadcasting. He's been at it ever since.
Scott graduated from Ball State University with a Bachelor of Arts in telecommunications. Since then, he's worked in newsrooms across the country. Scott started his career at WICS in Springfield, IL. He then moved out west to work for WOWT in Omaha, NE. Previously, he co-anchored the 5 p.m. newscast at WEHT in Evansville, IN.
When he's not at work, you'll find Scott chowing down at local eateries or working off those carbs at the gym.
