Scott Hanson '93 has enjoyed a decorated sportscasting career since graduating with a broadcast journalism degree from Newhouse in 1993. But the role that he's best known for is hosting NFL RedZone, the live, whip-around the league show dedicated to providing fans of all 32 teams with an up close look at every touchdown, every big highlight, and every dramatic finish. It’s a unique role for Hanson, a former walk on and four-year member of the Orange football team. For seven consecutive, commercial-free hours each Sunday during the regular season, Hanson acts as the eyes, ears, and voice of the NFL through his fast-paced and frenetic show. It's a role Hanson's been training for ever since he was a child. Hanson discusses how he prepares for his hosting duties, how a persistent letter writing campaign to Coach Dick MacPherson earned Hanson a spot as a walk-on for those talented Orange football teams of the late 80s and early 90s, and, of course, his legendary iron bladder as Hanson has only taken one bathroom break during his 13 years hosting NFL RedZone.
