He then continued his education at Miami Lakes Tech television school from 1977 to 1978. Following in his father's footsteps, Scott joined Turner Production, a division of WTCG Channel 17, as camera operator in 1978. In his 36 years at Turner Broadcasting, he moved steadily up the career ladder moving from senior camera operator, senior tape operator, edit/tape manager, supervisor of production operations, and senior director of field operations. He worked on numerous productions and projects throughout the years, including the Atlanta Braves, Hawks, Flames, and Thrashers on TBS, SEC Football, NBA on TBS/TNT, NFL on TNT, The Goodwill Games, and Major League Baseball on TBS. In 2001, Scott was promoted to vice president, production operations of Turner Studios, which was by then one of the largest all-digital broadcast facilities, where he was responsible for all studio operations, scenic services and field operations. In September 2006, the Southeast National Association of Television Arts and Sciences honored him with the prestigious Silver Circle Award for his contributions to the Atlanta television community. Scott will be remembered by his friends and family as a generous and loving person who mentored many people both personally and professionally. He is survived by his parents, Jeannine and Joseph P.
