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.

Gus Johnson Calls Game Winner In Illinois Minnesota Matchup, Goes Berzerk [Video]

One bad thing about this year's NCAA Tournament will be the absence of Gus Johnson. Now that the charismatic play by play man works for FOX, he won't be calling any games on CBS' family of networks. That doesn't mean he can't call Big 10 conference tournament games. Check out this game-winning call from Johnson when Illinois beats Minnesota at the buzzer. In typical Gus fashion, he goes berzerk.
