Rachel Scott is an American journalist based in New York, New York. She is a producer and multi-platform reporter at ABC News.
Scott graduated from University of Southern California in 2015 with a Bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism.
Rachel started her career in 2011 as an Intern at KTLA 5 News. From 2013-2014, she was a Current Events Director at USC Political Student Assembly. From 2012-2015, she served as a writer for KCBS. Later, she worked as an Executive Producer at Trojan Vision Television and Annenberg TV News.
In 2015, Rachel became an Intern at CNN. Rachel first joined ABC News in 2016 as a production associate for ABC News Live, before becoming an associate producer at GMA Digital. Rachel crisscrossed the nation in those assignments, reporting from Florida on Hurricane Irma, and profiling women across the country running for office during the 2018 midterms.
The impressive dedication to her work that Rachel has brought to Washington was also evident in her earlier assignments: While producing full-time for GMA Digital last year, Rachel took on an additional role as a weekend general assignment reporter for WTNH-TV, ABC’s New Haven, CT affiliate, where Rachel honed her on-air reporting skills.
As ABC New’s newest Multi-Platform Reporter, I have no doubt Rachel’s trademark enthusiasm and dedication to reporting the biggest stories of the day will serve our affiliates, digital partners and radio extremely well.
