Talk about home-court advantage, Scott Gerfen has been covering the central Ohio beat for more than a decade. Born and raised in Marion, the morning co-anchor and reporter began his broadcasting career in sports as an intern at 610 WTVN.
It eventually blossomed into a job as a news reporter at 1490 WMRN in Marion following graduation from The Ohio State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism in 1995. After a short stay at WMRN, Scott left broadcasting and spent nearly three years at the Marion Star where he covered nearly every beat from government to crime and schools. In 1998, he joined the 610 WTVN staff fulltime. If you don’t recognize him from AM, maybe you heard him in 2000 as part of the 97.9 WNCI Morning Zoo. Scott has earned a number of broadcasting awards. Twice, he was honored as best reporter in Ohio by the Associated Press.
