KTHV anchor Dawn Scott gives voice to foster children
Scott has interviewed the mighty and the famous, but she’s best known for the news she delivers about foster children longing for ‘A Place to Call Home.’ She gives them a voice
If TV careers boiled down to their most embarrassing moment, Dawn Scott’s life as a broadcaster would be all about the naked guy.
Hollering through a ski mask, he streaked behind her 14 years ago while she was reporting on a bomb threat for a station in Seattle. To her chagrin, his full frontal and her reaction — “Oh, my goodness” — are preserved by internet archives, including one that’s sticky with malware. It has had more than a few views, but that is a case of sniffles in the world where things go viral. The only thing it exposes about Scott is her composure.

And a pro she is. During her quarter-century on-air, more than a decade of it as a prime-time anchor for KTHV-TV, she has reported the national stories in her medium size market, interviewing public figures from first lady Laura Bush to now-freed death row inmate Damien Echols. She has won two regional Emmys from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, and the Radio Television Digital News Association gave her an Edward R. Murrow Award for a feature on a man with Tourette’s syndrome her colleague Ed Buckner.
As the station’s Verify reporter, she answers oddball questions posed by viewers without guffawing. She has reassured the multitude they aren’t about to die from an electromagnetic pulse and explained that science isn’t certain why seeing someone yawn makes you yawn, too.
Although she shares custody 50/50 with her ex-husband and guards the time she spends with their two children, she speaks for charity events, promotes fundraisers, sits on boards for Central Arkansas Women and Children First, Miracle League, Best Buddies, the American Heart Association.
All that service, plus the cozy chatting she does with fans via Facebook Live would be enough to excuse the 46-year-old for being athletic, kinda brainy and far from blond; but she’s also something more than her job did not require her to be: a voice for children who need homes.
It began with the job. In 2010, KTHV promised the state Department of Human Services monthly videos about children available for adoption. The concept’s not new, Scott notes. Broadcasters at several Arkansas stations have been assigned similar tasks in the four decades since “Wednesday’s Child” made Carolyn Long an icon on KARK-TV.
Scott got her first “A Place to Call Home” assignment in April 2011. It unnerved her. She saw herself as a newscaster covering hard news. She remembers being assured, “‘We don’t know to move ahead with our partnership if you’ll continue to do the stories, but we need you to do the story.'”
The story was a girl named Courtney. “I was given a photo of her and a small description, which basically is like, ‘She’s 10 years old. She loves animals. She likes to be outside.’ And I’m thinking, ‘What are we going to do here?'”
She felt unprepared and worried that the girl wouldn’t like her or might be bitter, angry.
They shot the segment at the Little Rock Zoo’s then-new penguin exhibit. “She was the sweetest, sweetest spirit. And she talked very openly about having been in foster care and how hard it was to be in foster care and how badly she wanted a family. And it broke my heart. It just absolutely broke my heart.”
Back in the studio, Scott sat down and wondered at herself. Why had she been so shaken? She was not the story. She edited the tape to put Courtney front and center.
A couple who weren’t even looking to adopt saw it, contacted the Division of Children and Family Services and began the process that gave the girl home.
All Scott had to do was let her speak.
“I think that’s what Dawn has done so beautifully, take a child out of oblivion as a number and show their individuality, their uniqueness, their passion, their desire for a home, and brought it to a broader audience,” says Christie Erwin, director of Project Zero, a nonprofit that also works with DHS to publicize adoptable children.
Dawn Scott Education
She attended Hall High School in Little Rock and graduated from Northwestern University in Chicago. She lives in Little Rock and is a mom to two children, a boy, and a girl. In her spare time, she swims, practices yoga, reads, loves cycling and adores to trail-run with her beloved Golden Retriever, Scout, by her side.
Dawn Scott Career
Dawn has spent the majority of her 22-year broadcast career at THV11. In 1992, she started working at WBBM-TV, the CBS affiliate in Chicago, IL, where she researched news stories and worked as a newsroom assignment desk assistant in college. During that time, she was also a radio reporter in Evanston, IL. She got her on-camera start at KCAU-TV in Sioux City, IA, and joined THV11 as an anchor/reporter from 1995-2002. In 2002, she moved to Seattle, Washington, where she was a reporter/fill-in anchor for CBS affiliate KIRO-TV. She returned home in 2006 to start a family, and she has remained at THV11 ever since.
Dawn won a highly-coveted 2007 Edward R. Murrow award and was recognized by the Society of Professional Journalists for a story she produced on a colleague, Chief Meteorologist Ed Buckner’s struggle with Tourette syndrome. She won a 2014 EMMY for a 30-minute special on the West Memphis murders. She also won a 2013 EMMY for her “A Place to Call Home” adoption special. She has garnered seven Arkansas Associated Press awards for her news reporting. In Seattle, she won a “Best of the West” award for her coverage of breaking news.
Dawn covered a President Bill Clinton’s 1996 re-election, interviewed First Lady Laura Bush, and reported live from the 40th & 50th anniversary of the Crisis at Central High. She recently interviewed Damien Echols, who was convicted in the killings of three West Memphis boys and later freed from prison.
But it is her work with Arkansas foster children that is nearest her heart. Currently, Dawn produces and anchors the station’s Emmy award-winning “A Place to Call Home” specials and segments, which feature Arkansas children up for adoption. More than half of the 128+ children she has interviewed have been adopted. In 2014, she became one of thirteen people nationwide to win an Adoption Excellence Award from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for providing adoption and other permanency outcomes for children in foster care.
Dawn serves on the Board of Directors for Central Arkansas’ Women and Children First, which operates a shelter for victims of domestic violence and their children. She also serves on the Board of Directors for Miracle League, and she’s on the Advisory Board for Best Buddies. Additionally, she is a television spokeswoman for the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign, a role she has filled for the past five years.
Dawn has repeatedly been voted “Best News Anchor” by readers of the Arkansas Times and “Best Anchor” by readers of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
