Sue Scott


Veteran broadcaster Sue Scott is best known as a TV weather presenter. Alternating mostly with Tina Carline, she presented the weather on TV One's prime time news from 1973 to 1988 (when production shifted from Wellington to Auckland). Scott was noted for her warmth and diction. At high school, she was advised that broadcasting was a waste of time. Alongside work in radio as a reporter and newsreader, Scott would later spend a year co-hosting It's in the Bag with Selwyn Toogood. She also studied business at university, and has worked in (and taught) marketing and communications.  

There wasn't an emphasis on `personality' issues then — weather presentation was more factual than personality-driven. Sue Scott
