Early in his career, Scott worked as news director with current WTVO general manager Jon Skorburg. Picken succeeds Kent Harrell who recently left the Nexstar-owned Rockford station for the media group’s Green Bay station, WFRV.
>Update: Scott told TVSpy, “I started today (9/24/2012), and yes, I’m very excited. That’s because the GM here, Jon Skorburg, is a guy I’ve worked with before and with whom I have tremendous respect. I’ll concede a return to Rockford wasn’t what I had in mind when I left my last job in Cedar Rapids, but when Jon told me he really wanted to work with me again, I realized I would enjoy that.
