With over ten years of experience in radio, Scott Braddock brought his love for broadcasting to Newsradio 1080 KRLD in April 2008. He is the host of Beyond the Headlines, which airs weekdays at 2pm on KRLD.
Most recently, Scott served as Chief Political Reporter for Newsradio 740 KTRH in Houston, where he was honored with an Edward R. Murrow award for investigative journalism and received recognition for excellence and fairness in political reporting from members of Texas' Congressional delegation.
During his five years in Houston, he covered a broad range of issues with a special focus on education and immigration, two of the most important issues facing Texas and the nation. He also reported on stories of national importance including Hurricane Katrina, the prosecution of former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, Andrea Yates' release from prison, the death of Enron founder Ken Lay, and the BP Texas City refinery explosion that killed 15 and injured hundreds more.
Scott has moderated congressional debates and served as an analyst of Texas politics.
In honor of his many years of service to the Houston community, Houston Mayor Bill White declared Scott's final day in Houston as "Scott Braddock Day."
A Texas native, Scott began his radio career at the age of 16 in Brenham spinning records (yes, records) and reading school lunch menus on the air. From that point forward, Scott was hooked. He developed a passion for broadcast communication. He was a disc jockey in Bryan/College Station and later transitioned into news reporting in both Washington State and California.
Scott was born in Wharton County and enjoys making trips back to his family farm. In his free time, Scott spends time with his son Alex and his daughter Carolyn.
