REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

 Willard Scott Biography

TODAY’s ebullient Willard Scott has made mornings much brighter for millions of viewers since he first appeared on the program in March 1980 as weatherman. In addition to his current duties as substitute weather reporter, he appears on the program on Tuesdays and Thursdays with his popular 100th-birthday salutes.

Scott joined TODAY as weatherman after having performed similar duties at WRC-TV, the NBC owned-and-operated television station in Washington, D.C., starting in 1968.

His travels with TODAY have taken Scott throughout Europe aboard the Orient Express; to China; to Australia; to South America; on a cruise ship along the Eastern Seaboard; to Rome during Holy Week; Hawaii; and to the heartland of America on the “TODAY Express.”

In addition to his many weather telecasts from state fairs, fund-raising events, parades and civic events across the country, Scott co-anchored coverage of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade from 1987 to 1997, and traditionally appeared as Santa Claus at White House events for children.

Scott has made numerous appearances throughout the country, including at Carnegie Hall in 1989 with Skitch Henderson and the New York Pops; at Symphony Hall in 1989, when he narrated The Night Before Christmas with the Boston Symphony; at the Palace Theatre with George Abbott and the Grand Ole Opry. In addition, Scott hosted the Family Channel’s The New Original Amateur in 1991. Scott also appeared as the very first Ronald McDonald in TV commercials in 1963.

He began his career with NBC as a page at the Washington station in 1950. At that time he was also a weekend disk jockey for radio station WINX in that city. He joined WOL Radio that same year and, with Ed Walker, formed The Joy Boys broadcast team, moving in 1953 to WRC-AM, the NBC radio station in Washington, D.C., where he remained until 1972. The Joy Boys then broadcast from WWDC in Washington from 1972 to 1974. In addition, Scott's weather reports were broadcast on WRC-AM from 1956 until 1972.

In 1983, Scott complied with a request from a viewer to wish his mother a happy 100th birthday on the air. Thus began a long tradition of giving on-air birthday greetings to centenarians that still continues today.

Scott has distinguished himself with his public-service efforts, and has been named both Distinguished Virginian by the Virginia Association of Broadcasters (1990) and Washingtonian of the Year by Washingtonian magazine (1979). He also received the Great American Award from the Bards of Bohemia in New Orleans (1990) and was named Humanitarian in Residence by the National Society of Fund Raisers (1985). In 1985, he was recognized by President Ronald Reagan with the Private Sector Award for Public Service.

Scott is the author of six books: The Joy of Living, Down Home Stories, Willard Scott’s All-American Cookbook, America Is My Neighborhood, Murder Under Blue Skies and Murder in the Mist. He is a graduate of American University in Washington, D.C., with a B.A. in philosophy and religion.
