David Scott

I’m a native New Englander (Peabody, Mass.) but a relative newcomer to this side of the sports media business. After graduating from UMass in the early 1990s I began a journalism career that saw stints at start-ups (like College Sports Magazine), established titles (SI for Kids and Sport Magazine) and just about everything in between from small town newspapers to big time websites (who remembers ESPN Zone?), emerging blogs (sports media criticism at “Scott’s Shots”) and magazines (RIP, FHM USA). I co-authored a national best-seller, “Bounce Back,” with John Calipari and then served as Coach Calipari’s social media and business manager for his first two seasons at the University of Kentucky. A serendipitous meeting with Josh Krulewitz at the 2011 Dick Vitale Gala resulted in me gaining employ with the Worldwide Leader in July of 2011. I currently oversee PR for ESPN’s news content and I’m able to use my experience on “the other side” to help give a clearer and more accurate picture of the incredibly deep and expansive journalistic efforts put forth by all the talented people here at ESPN.
