What was the name of the blonde lady that was on with Jack Chase and Don Kent? She was from the Cape and you used to drag her out with her red cap when it snowed. – Bob, Newburyport
That was Shelby Scott.
She was famous for her storm coverage, always braving the elements (in her red cap) whenever New England was socked by snow. I remember a newspaper article back in the day, where they measured the total height of the snow that fell one winter in “Shelbys,” instead of feet.
Though a lot of people remember her for storm coverage, Shelby was also a pioneer…one of the first women to do on-air reporting for television news. Bob is correct that Shelby co-anchored the noon news here at channel 4 for many years with Jack Chase. She was also part of the first female anchor duo with Gail Harris.
What are your memories of Shelby?
