Scott (Tony) Jenkins today.

Scott started his broadcasting career at Armed Forces Radio in Taiwan while attending high school on the island. His father worked for the Voice of America and when his family was not stationed in DC, they lived overseas in Hong Kong and Kenya. After graduating, he returned to the US and was soon working at major market stations all over the country, including DC.

Scott came to WPGC in early 1978 from WEEL for weekends. By the Summer of 1979, he was the 10p - 2a personality, but now using the name, 'Tony Jenkins' at the request of Program Director, Scott Shannon who renamed him to avoid confusion with the two other 'Scotts' on the station at the time, Scott Woodside and Scott Carpenter. Later, he did the overnight show before departing for evenings at KIMN / Denver in August, 1982.

In 1986 while working in Denver, he auditioned for NBC when the Network stopped in Colorado on a nationwide hunt for new talent. He was one of thousands across the country who read for parts. The audition resulted in a role on the daytime drama, 'Santa Barbara'and work on 'Generations'.

He also has commerical and film credits and has been quite active in narration for TBS, Discovery, the History Channel, the Travel Channel and HGTV to name a few.

Today, Scott does afternoons as 'Tony Scott' on Dial-Global's Classic Rock satellite format in LA, as well as weekends and swing at 95.5 KLOS where he hosts, 'The 7th Day', heard every Sunday at 5PM, Pacific time.
