Sports Anchor/Eskimos play-by-play
Morley Scott has been broadcasting in Edmonton for over 30 years, doing what many people do from the couch after work: talking about sports.
It all began many years ago at the University of Alberta Radio station (he calls himself a stow-away, not a student) broadcasting Golden Bears hockey, basketball and football. Since 2010, Morley has been the play-by-play voice of the Edmonton Eskimos on 630 CHED and also provides sports updates on the Afternoon News with J’Lyn and Andrew.
In between has been a road map that took him through St. Paul Alta., Prince Albert, Sask., Edmonton, Vancouver and then back to Edmonton.
The highlights are: Sixteen years working on Oilers broadcast mostly on radio, but some on TV, one year with the Vancouver Giants of the WHL and several world-class events, like the Stanley Cup Final, the Grey Cup, the Brier, the World Track and Field Championships, and spending a weekend broadcasting a demolition derby.
Morley is usually found at a stadium, rink, studio or walking with a phone in one hand, a coffee in the other, and Billy Joel music in his ears.
