Hi, I’m Steve Scott, afternoon news anchor here at WCBS Newsradio 880. At 6’5″, I’m the short guy on the afternoon anchor team. Wayne Cabot has a couple inches on me!

I came to WCBS after 20 years in Chicago, including the last 13 at WLS-AM, where I was news director and morning anchor. I was born in California, and worked there until moving to Chicago in 1986.

I’ll never forget my first day here at WCBS. It was 9/11/06, the five year anniversary of the terror attacks.

Career highlights include reporting on the aftermath of 9/11 from Ground Zero, interviewing Fidel Castro in Havana, covering the Kosovo war from an aircraft carrier in the Adriatic Sea and also from Albania, where I interviewed Kosovar refugees, reporting from Bosnia, reporting on the scene of the mid-air collision over the Hudson River and being on the air when the Eliot Spitzer and “Miracle on the Hudson” stories broke. There have been a bunch of other great stories, but these are the ones that really stand out to me.

I’ve been blessed to work with some really great people through out my career. I’m very excited to be a part of the very best radio news team in America, at WCBS Newsradio 880!
