Ray Scott was born in Johnstown PA, and began his broadcasting career in 1937. Working for CBS in 1956, he was assigned along with Tony Canadeo to broadcast televised Green Bay Packers games.
His powerful, deep voice became synonymous with Lombardi’s great championship teams of the 1960s. His concise style did not elaborate on the obvious, but rather contributed meaningful commentary.
After CBS discontinued the practice of assigning announcers to specific teams, his close association with the Packers ended in 1968. He then became CBS’s top play-by-play announcer for the NFL.
Although best known for Packers football broadcasts, Scott’s assignments also included radio and television broadcasts in basketball (NCAA Final Four, University of Pittsburgh, Drake, University of Minnesota, Duquesne); baseball (Twins, Brewers, Senators) and golf (US Open, British Open, PGA, Masters). He also worked with several other NFL and WFL teams, several NCAA conferences and almost every major college football bowl game.
