Scott joined ABC 7 Eyewitness News, Chicago's #1 station for news, in December 2014. In her announcement, the ABC 7 News Director described her as "an experienced and knowledgeable meteorologist who enjoys the challenge of forecasting Chicago's unpredictable weather." Scott joined ABC 7 from NBC 5 in Chicago where she was the morning and weekend meteorologist since September 2011.
