Scott McGee is an anchor and managing editor for News 12 Westchester and News 12 Hudson Valley. He was honored to be nominated as one of NY’s "Best Anchors" in 2016. McGee brings more than two decades of journalism experience to News 12, but his start in front of the camera was a little unusual; he was an intern on the Bill Nye the Science Guy show.
From that humble (but very informative) beginning, he made stops at TV stations in Clarksburg, WV, Decatur, IL and Phoenix, AZ. In Phoenix, McGee's work earned him 3 Emmy awards. His investigations led to the resignation of a police chief who was euthanizing dogs improperly. His stories also helped change Arizona law to make it easier to prosecute pimps who prey on underage girls.
His next stop was in Paducah, KY where he was the evening anchor. His work earned multiple awards including 4 straight for "Best Anchor" from the Associated Press. He was also recognized for his work producing a regular "Schemes and Ripoffs" report where he investigated scammers looking to separate people from their money and personal identification.
McGee is excited to bring his experience and investigative skills to the Hudson Valley. You can always check out his "Facebook" page or follow him on "Twitter" for updates on News 12's top stories. Or better yet, let him know if you need someone in your corner.
