Tamara Scott joined the WNCT 9 On Your Side news team in May 2016. She is currently a general assignment reporter and digital journalist across various dayparts.
Tamara has called North Carolina her home all of her life. She is originally from Raleigh, NC, but is no stranger to Greenville, NC. She is a proud pirate graduate of East Carolina University with a bachelor’s degree in Communication and a minor in Hispanic Studies. During her time with ECU, she had the amazing opportunity to travel to Spain to study Spanish and says it was one of the most exciting times in her life.
Before joining the 9 On Your Side team, Tamara interned as a news intern at Time Warner cable where she got to help cover major stories in the capital of our state, Raleigh, N.C. Before that, she was a part of the 9 On Your Side crew as an intern for two school semesters at ECU.
Tamara’s dream of becoming a reporter started very early when she first sat on the anchor desk in 5th grade. Since then she has participated in her school’s media outlets, all through her education.
When she is not on air Tamara spends her time hanging out with friends, going to the beach, trying new restaurants and catching up on her favorite TV shows.
Tamara has a true rooted passion for journalism and is excited about getting the chance to know you and telling your story in the next couple of years. She has a soft spot in her heart for those in need. If you have anything you want to share or a story idea, she would love to hear from you!
