He has been working with the NFL Network since 2006 as a national reporter covering all 32 teams. He transitioned into studio hosting in 2008, and was named the host of NFL RedZone during its inaugural season in 2009.
Hanson graduated Cum Laude from the prestigious Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University while playing football for the Orangemen. Hanson and his teammates were a combined 20-4 during his Junior & Senior years.

Outside of his broadcast career, Hanson is passionate about world travel, adventure and serving those in need.
He has run with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain… Climbed Mt Kilimanjaro in Africa… Hiked the Great Wall of China… Gone great white shark cage diving in Australia and Mexico… and visited 6 of the 7 continents (with only Antarctica remaining).
His involvement with various, worldwide Christian charities has seen him serve the needy in Africa, India, Russia, the Amazon jungle, Haiti, the Philippines, Mexico and domestic locations in the USA.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Scott about what it’s like to be LIVE on television, without a bathroom break for 7 straight hours. We also hear his amazing story of how he came to faith in Christ, the movie that he rented that changed his life and why missions and going overseas to share God’s love to others, is extremely important to him.
