Murrow awards and 20 regional Emmys. The Electronic News Association of the Carolinas has twice named Scott North Carolina Television Reporter of the Year. Today, Scott is known as the Tar Heel Traveler. His Tar Heel Traveler series on WRAL takes viewers along the back roads of North Carolina where he meets memorable characters, finds out-of-the-way places, and unearths fascinating historical footnotes. Scott has also published three books about his adventures, which will be available for purchase and signing.
This event is presented by the New Bern Historical Society in partnership with Tryon Palace.
