Scott is an award-winning journalist and joined the Vancouver newsroom in April 2012. Since then, he’s travelled throughout the province to cover some of the most high-profile stories in B.C. He was in Peachland, when wildfire threatened the entire community, earning him and the CTV News team RTNDA awards for best spot news coverage and best newscast. He went to Prince Rupert, Kitimat and Prince George to investigate pipeline concerns in the north. And he travelled to Battle Creek, Michigan to bring viewers a special series on the Enbridge oil spill, and how it could affect a pipeline proposal in B.C. The story earned a prestigious nomination for a Jack Webster Award.
Prior to joining CTV Vancouver, Scott was an anchor / reporter at CTV Edmonton, part of the team honoured with RTNDA awards for best newscast and best continuing coverage of the Slave Lake wildfires. He also covered provincial politics extensively, including one-on-one specials with both sitting premiers during his time in Alberta.
As a graduate of Ryerson University’s School of Journalism in Toronto, Scott’s professional life began as a print journalist at The Toronto Star. Moving on from there, he wrote for The Globe and Mail covering high profile stories like the Toronto 17 terrorism investigation, and the Air France crash at Pearson International Airport.
Born and raised in Dresden, Ontario, Scott grew up in a horse racing community and still enjoys watching the sport. He's an avid runner and takes full advantage of outdoor life in Vancouver.
