Anez graduated with his Bachelor of Arts degree in Radio-Television in 1988. He has spent his career in Orlando as a well-known radio and sports on-air personality.
“I always had an intrigue about the broadcast field because I had grown up listening and watching so many great broadcasters and they had a magical effect on me,” said Anez.
He is currently the host of Orlando’s Morning News with Scott Anez, which airs on WBDO-AM/FM. He has also hosted “Afternoons with Scott Anez” on ESPN580 and was the radio/broadcast host of the Orlando Magic for over 19 years.

In addition, when it comes to networking with the impressive list of local and national news stations, he said that he “kept his hand in both news and sports knowing how crazy this business can be. I wanted options in the future, and I wanted to stay here in my hometown of Orlando.”
“Scott is one of the most recognized voices in Orlando and across the country, and his induction into the NSCM Hall of Fame is well-deserved. He is an outstanding broadcaster, and we are very proud of him and his accomplishments,” commented Robert S. Littlefield, Director of Nicholson School of Communication and Media.
