Reporter/ Weekend Evening Anchor

David Scott is a three-time Emmy-winning reporter with more than 30 years in broadcast news. David is a weekday reporter and weekend anchor for KXAN.

A weekday reporter and weekend anchor for KXAN, David has covered four national political conventions and his reportage has taken him from Gulf hurricanes to a tour of Moscow. He has interviewed or attended press conferences for six presidents.

A native of Michigan, David has worked in Detroit, Boston, Houston and San Antonio. With more than 25 years in the Lone Star state (primarily Austin), David considers himself an adopted Texan. David and his wife, Tammy, live in the Hill Country with their two dogs, Red and Ronin, and their calico cat, Cheyenne.

David’s interests include reading, politics, movies, scuba & swimming, Gulf coast surf fishing and tennis, although he admits to abandoning golf a few years ago as his game “went south.” He enjoys watching football, baseball and hockey.

Among his favorite reads are biographies, history & historical novels, and adventure.  His favorite movies include The Godfather (I & II), Casablanca, The English Patient, The Fountainhead, All About Eve, Key Largo, Shane, Last of the Mohicans, and the Bond movies (Connery, of course).

When it comes to music, David’s taste runs wide. He is a fan of jazz, classic rock, Latin and classical. Among his favorite performers are Steve Miller, Sting, The Moody Blues, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, trumpeter Rick Braun and Frank Sinatra.

Oh, and favorite foods? He enjoys anything out of the sea, barbeque, and Tex-Mex, of course. Tammy makes the best chalupas in Texas completely from scratch.

David especially admires those who work in service of those in need, and the U.S. military who sacrifice for this country.
