You can watch Scott Adkins report for WAVE 3 News every weeknight.  

Scott's passion is storytelling.  Since his arrival in 2011, he's been recognized with two Emmy nominations and named one of the best reporters in the state by the Kentucky Associated Press.  Scott has also appeared on national networks and reported live for MSNBC, CNN and The Weather Channel during the deadly March 2, 2012 tornado outbreak.

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. 

He 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. 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.
