Longtime radio personality departing from Eagle Radio

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (Nebraska) – A longtime radio personality is preparing to hit the airwaves for the foreseeable future.

Scott Carlson’s dreams of working in radio started as a teenager. However, it wasn’t until about ten years ago that “Scotty C” began his career with Eagle Radio in North Platte.

“Obviously I went to college and then went in a different direction and did some real estate and insurance sales right after college. But I’ve always had that itch, so on a whim I reached out to Jerome Gilg, who was Eagle’s general manager at the time. I said if anything comes up I’d be really interested and that’s pretty much what I want to do and it was a couple weeks after that he called and the rest was kind of history. Carlson said.

From sports to news to live broadcasting, Carlson has just about done it all during his time on the air. But when we asked “Scotty C” if he should pick just one thing he enjoyed most during his tenure with Eagle, he was quick to respond.

“My favorite aspect was probably the morning show. It’s an escape in many ways. Most people know that I’ve always been a theater kid. I have been involved with the Community Playhouse for many years. Radio is just a theater of the mind, we ended up turning the morning show on FM 98.1 into “Good Morning North Platte” where we had local interviews for two hours every morning. Bringing the news component to the show a little bit more, that was really fun.”

Carlson has spent the past five years hosting morning shows on Eagle Radio’s Mix 97.1 (KELN) and FM 98.1 and AM 1410 (KOOQ)

Scotty C’s last day on the air is Friday. And as for his future plans, Carlson and his wife have purchased a Lincoln County business and will have more information to share with the public in March.
