You can wake up to Scott Patterson anchoring Your Morning News on TWC News each weekday. Although Western New York is his wife's hometown, Scott has adopted it as his own.

Scott is a native of Schoharie, New York, a small town about 40 miles west of Albany. He started his career as a radio news anchor/reporter while still in high school, anchoring his first newscast at the age of 17 on a radio station in Albany. He later reported for the Albany Times Union during summers off from Syracuse University.

Scott's first television reporting job was in Watertown while still in college. From there he moved to Albany, reporting for WTEN, WXXA and Capital News 9 (now TWC News Albany). Then it was on to the Midwest as the weekend anchor for KPTM, the FOX affiliate in Omaha, Nebraska.

Prior to working in Western New York, Scott spent two years as a weekend anchor for TWC News Rochester, where he’s remembered for his marathon live anchoring of damaging tornadoes and the death of Osama Bin Laden.

Scott recently bought a home in Lancaster with his wife Carrie, who is a manager for a training and consulting company. The two were actually married in a ceremony overlooking Niagara Falls. Carrie is a graduate of Sweet Home High School and her parents still live in Tonawanda.

During numerous visits over the years Scott developed an appreciation of, and enthusiasm for, Buffalo and Western New York. The Pattersons are overjoyed to call the area their home. It’s quite common to see them out walking and biking, rooting on the Bills and Sabres, and enjoying all of the great food – from chicken wings to a certain taco joint.
