Scott has reported extensively on the U.S. space program and has interviewed six American presidents. He began his career as a feature writer for the NY Herald Tribune, and was a contributing writer for Parade Magazine. Currently, Scott is the Senior Correspondent for WPIX-TV in New York. Among his many honors is the Ellis Island Medal of Honor for outstanding Americans. Scott is an accomplished photographer whose work has been exhibited in galleries. A photograph he took of John F. Kennedy is in the Library of Congress.

Reviews

"Marvin Scott is a classic example of what a good reporter is. He sits on the sideline and tells the story. Marvin Scott is a reporter's reporter. What a great journey he has experienced and he tells it all right here. A pro's pro."--Larry King

"Marvin Scott tells it like he saw it, and you're getting this intrepid reporter's vivid and telling account of his half century at the heart of New York's political and social scene. He knows everybody and has seen everything. Get ready for a wild ride."--Geraldo Rivera

"Marvin Scott is the real deal. These stories reflect the Integrity, honesty and humor that are the hallmark of this journalist's journalist." --Al Roker

"As a young reporter starting out at WCBS-TV IN 1979, I only knew of Marvin Scott's reputation as a tough competitor and a great storyteller. But I would come to truly know him as a gentleman...a journalist who always cared about getting it right, but not at the expense of his humanity or anyone else's. As I see it, Marvin is a treasure and his book a treasure trove of fascinating insights into some of the most intriguing people and events of our lifetime."--Meredith Vieira

"Over the years, I have known Marvin Scott as an objective storyteller who never wavers in his commitment to great reporting. This book is a testament to his incredible career."-- Rudy Giuliani

"As I Saw It deftly pairs Scott's unique storytelling and photography to give his readers a new look at the singular experiences of a lifelong reporter, and the stories that shaped a generation. Very highly recommended for both community and academic library Contemporary Journalism collections."--Library Bookwatch

"Marvin Scott has seen it all. He's a born storyteller who gives a fresh perspective on life's everyday experiences that have shaped us all. Dan Rather (he wrote the foreword) probably best describes him best. 'The dictionary describes intrepid as being of resolute fearlessness, fortitude, and endurance. That is exactly how to describe Marvin Scott's journey as a lifelong reporter-and to describe the man himself. It fits Marvin like a bespoke suit.'"--New York Lifestyles
