Scott Anderson joined The Ticket in February 1993 (then WXYT-AM), making his professional debut during the station’s Lions broadcasts. He has had such positions with WXYT as the Lions pre-game and post-game host (1998-2000); Lions scoreboard and halftime host ; MSU football pre-game/halftime/post-game host (1998 and 1999); Detroit Red Wings pre-game/post-game host; host of Inside Hockeytown; Detroit Tigers pre-game/post-game host (2001).

Born in Cleveland, Scott moved from the mistake by the lake at an early age for Chicago, and has lived in Metro-Detroit for the last 30 years. He began his radio career as a Sophomore at Bloomfield Hills Andover High School at WBFH, 88.1 FM, and is a telecommunications graduate from Michigan State University. A proud member of the Moon Boot Hockey Hall of Fame, Scott enjoys golfing, beer drinking/making, Brady Bunch Trivia, playing rock music at high decibels, watching movies, professional wrestling and ding dong ditch.

He has yet to find his other half to share in these activities, but his twelve year-old English Setter, Louise (A.K.A Lumpy, Louie, Schnooky Lumps) takes up enough of Scott’s time.
