Scott Van Pelt is a well-known media personality and sportscaster who is extremely popular amongst sports fans after his longstanding stint as a part of the ESPN team.  SVP, as he has come to be recognized by his loyal followers, is known for his clever one-liners and extensive knowledge across all sport categories and topics. He graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in Television/Radio/Film, and he began his career with a local FOX affiliate in the Washington D.C. area. His first major television stop came with the Golf Channel in 1994 where he was the main studio host for much of their signature programming.  He remained there until 2001 when he left the channel to take a job at ESPN as a revered SportsCenter anchor.

Since arriving at ESPN, Scott Van Pelt has turned into one of the most recognizable sports personalities in the United States.  He began primarily doing the early morning editions of SportsCenter, but since has been promoted to the ‘primetime’ eleven o’clock slot. In addition, Scott has been one of ESPN’s primary golf correspondents and he is the recurring host for ESPN’s Master’s Tournament coverage which began several years ago.  Sports Speaker Van Pelt has covered all four grand slam golf tournaments throughout his career, and continues to be the lead reporter for all golf events covered by ESPN.

Scott Van Pelt has also made a significant imprint in the world of sports talk radio. The Scott Van Pelt Show began airing on ESPN Radio in 2009, and it has since been changed to SVP & Russillo. The show is simulcast on ESPN2 during the week.  Previously he was the co-host for another ESPN Radio Show, Tirico and Van Pelt, which aired on weekday afternoons before it was cancelled in 2009.
