An only child from the Cleveland suburb of Solon and University of Dayton graduate, Jon Scott has made Buffalo his home for over five years after joining the Spectrum News team. Prior to this, Jon spent the first six years of his career in his home state, most recently as a sports anchor and reporter for WKBN.
Throughout his time reporting, Jon finds that he is most inspired by telling the stories that go beyond a bio or boxscore. One story that sticks out as one of his most memorable is his coverage of Logan Thomas, a former Bills tight end, and his wife when they opened up about a miscarriage they had dealt with a year prior, in hopes that their story could give strength to others who have gone through a similar tragedy.
Jon is a proud resident of the “city of good neighbors”, he remembers many snowy winters where the community came together to assist one another with the various struggles that come with those famous Buffalo snowstorms. In his off-time, you can find Jon exploring all that Western New York has to offer and spending time exploring Buffalo’s ever-growing downtown restaurant scene.
