Brian Scott is NBC5’s multimedia journalist covering and living in Denton County.
Brian joined the team in January 2013 after spending nearly 5 years reporting throughout Iowa and Southern Minnesota. He worked at KIMT in Mason City and then KGAN in Cedar Rapids.
During that time he was awarded the Iowa Broadcast News Association’s award for breaking news coverage of a massive dam collapse, the “Reporter Excellence” award, and helped the station win an Emmy for “Best Newscast.”
Before going professional, Brian grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis, MN where he developed his love for journalism and met his future wife, Amber. He graduated cum laude from St. Cloud State University in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in Television Broadcasting and Interpersonal Communications.
Brian is focused on the Denton County area and is ready to tell your stories. Feel free to approach him with ideas, but don’t be surprised if you find him working alone. Brian is one of several journalists at NBC5 that shoots, reports, edits, and often goes live all on his own. Don’t worry though – he enjoys the challenge of doing it all!
