Scott learned the meaning of hard work growing up on a dairy farm near Zumbrota, Minnesota, about an hour from Minneapolis. When he found some free time from all the chores in the barn and in the fields, he would spend virtually all that time playing sports and watching them on television.

After college, he handled play-by-play at a radio station in northern Idaho. He worked several radio jobs, and then moved into television news in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Scott still stays active with sports, playing basketball, running, weightlifting and practicing many sports with his children. There are five of them! Haley and four boys, including the twins, born in 2004. Scott does extensive work with the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, the Red Cross and other charities.
