Michael Scott

Michael_Scott_KRLDAM I was born in Natchitoches, Louisiana(location of the movie, “Steel Magnolias”).  I grew up nearby, graduating high school in Many.

I became involved in radio when I realized I was too short to play in the NBA.  During my college radio days, I did everything from jock to news, later becoming the music director and, eventually, general manager of the station.  While in school, I also worked at a couple of local stations.

After graduating with a degree in broadcast journalism, I moved to Denver for a couple of years and, then, to Dallas in 1993.  I actually worked for KRLD as a technical operator soon after relocating here.  I began reporting traffic in 1995 after learning the craft from many talented people(including Mr. Rob Scivally). My traffic reporting career includes a 17+ year stint with KSCS-FM and 10 years on WFAA-TV.

When I’m not working, I’m usually working out/running.  I’ve run several half marathons and am getting ready to begin training for my first full marathon soon.  I’m an avid sports fan, love listening to music and attending concerts.  I wear my Louisiana roots on my sleeve, mainly by cooking Cajun/Creole dishes when I have time
