Scott Prather

I’ve been with ESPN1420 for over eight years. In addition to hosting the Great S.C.O.T.T. show every weekday from 5-6 and the Sports Gap from 4-5, I serve as the brand manager and program director. While sports is my passion, I always try to remember why I got into this business. Sports is fun. Sometimes it’s serious, sometimes it’s lighthearted, but if you’re not having fun working in sports, then you’re doing something wrong. I have on many guests, ranging from professional athletes such as Thomas Morstead, Roman Harper, Charles Tillman, Tyson Chandler and Anthony Davis, to Saints and Pelicans correspondent Gus Kattengell, as well as local sports radio personalities and journalists. You can hear me doing play by play for UL baseball and softball when filling in for Jay or Steve. As a proud graduate of Loyola University of New Orleans, I got my start in radio working part time as a board operator, producer, and sports personality for Entercom broadcasting in New Orleans.

Ouch! New York Rangers Rinkside Reporters Takes Puck To The Face, Yet Keeps Reporting [Video]

I'll be honest, after watching this video, I realized I'm a wuss in the reporting world. John Giannone on the other hand, is a man. Eleven years ago, I was working with a camera crew for Cox Communications and covering the New Orleans Hornets. It sounds more glamorous than it actually was. I was in college, and helped carry the wires behind the courtside camera. The cool part was being courtside for NBA games and getting paid for it. One night David Wesley, now TV color commentator for the Hornets, crashed into me after...
