Scott Prather

I’ve been with ESPN1420 for over eight years. In addition to hosting the Great S.C.O.T.T. show every weekday from 4-6, I serve as the brand manager and program director. While sports is my passion, I always try to remember why I got into this business. Sports is fun. Sometimes it’s serious, sometimes it’s lighthearted, but if you’re not having fun working in sports, then you’re doing something wrong. I have on many guests, ranging from professional athletes such as Thomas Morstead, Roman Harper, Charles Tillman and Tyson Chandler, to Saints and Pelicans correspondent Gus Kattengell, as well as local sports radio personalities and journalists. You can hear me doing play by play for UL baseball and softball when filling in for Jay or Steve. As a proud graduate of Loyola University of New Orleans, I got my start in radio working part time as a board operator, producer, and sports personality for Entercom broadcasting in New Orleans.

Steve Gleason Responds To Atlanta Radio Segment That Mocked Him

Steve Gleason made national headlines yesterday for two reasons. One, he wrote a 4,500 word column for Sports Illustrated, detailing his battle with ALS. And two, because three Atlanta radio hosts made a segment belittling and mocking Gleason, as well as his incurable disease.
