NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Charlie Scott, who was a fixture in Nashville radio and television, was inducted into the Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame.
The ceremony was held Saturday night at the Embassy Suites in Murfreesboro.
Scott’s career in Middle Tennessee began as an announcer for WSIX radio in 1953.
He then went on to work nearly 60 years in Nashville radio and television, spending close to 50 years at News 2 as a reporter and assignment editor.

His son, Carter, accepted the Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame award on his behalf.
