Ray Kelly, the longest serving Commissioner in the history of the NYPD praised Scott saying, “he has always been a New York fixture,…so personable and with a tremendous sense of history.” In his just released book, As I Saw It: A Reporter’s Intrepid Journey, Scott reflects on the stories and personalities that helped shape a generation and have cast a lasting memory with him over the years.
The intrepid reporter has interviewed six presidents, along with reporting from the front lines of war in the Middle East and Asia. His book features anecdotes about marching alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as well as meetings with Yasser Arafat, Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra and President John F. Kennedy.
Scott said “I thank all the people who trusted me to tell their stories.” Marvin Scott is now in his 37th year as a reporter at WPIX-TV. He is an eleven-time Emmy Award–winner and member of the New York State Broadcasters Hall of Fame.
