Scott Detrow covers state politics and government for WHYY and Pennsylvania's other public radio stations.

Before working at the Capitol, Scott reported on politics and anchored afternoon newscasts for WITF-FM in Harrisburg and WFUV-FM in New York City.

Scott grew up in New Jersey and Wisconsin, and graduated summa cum laude from Fordham University with degrees in political science and English. Scott has won a national Edward R. Murrow Award for a series on the Pennsylvania National Guard, and embedded with its 56th Stryker Brigade north of Baghdad in 2009. He also won a Robert F.

He's an unapologetic Yankees fan, and amateur griller and cook.
