Darren Scott's smooth delivery and wealth of knowledge are two of the reasons that people enjoy listening to him. It's almost impossible to fault Darren's handling of current affairs or sports topics and people are aware that Darren will ,Just Plain Say It Like It Is.
“I've always had my heart set on Radio, even during high school I spent many afternoons hanging around Capital Radio Studios with Kevin Savage” Darren says. But when he matriculated from Delasalle College in 1981, instead of pursuing a career in Radio, Darren headed for Pretoria to study medicine at the University of Pretoria. While at TUKS he spent a lot of time at TUKS Fm which was still only a campus radio station back then. His interest in medicine faded quickly and in his second year he decided to abandon his medical degree and pursue a BA Communications Degree at RAU. Not long into his first year at RAU Scott was offered a job at Capital Radio, and the rest as they say, is history.
Darren has 31 years of experience on radio and 25 years of experience on television. He has presented on Capital radio, 702, MNET, Supersport, 5FM, East Coast radio and Jacaranda 94.2. Scott is no spring chicken in broadcasting, having pioneered a new style of radio with his various radio shows.
