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 now provides updates from the sports desk during 630 CHED Mornings with Chelsea Bird and Shaye Ganam.
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.
