Scott Coen Says Good Bye to ABC40 and FOX 6

Scott Coen (WGGB-TV)

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) – After 16 years on television here in western Massachusetts, Scott Coen has signed off from ABC40 for the last time.

Scott has had two stints with the station, first from 1987 to 1989, then again from 1998 to this Friday.

From World Series, to Super Bowls, to more high school games than he can count, Scott has covered it all over the years. Most recently, he began reporting on your stories – the stories of the people, places, and things that make western Massachusetts a great place to live and work.

He now heads off to the next chapter of his career, as an account executive at Saga Communications, who owns The River 93.9 (WRSI-FM) and WHMP-AM

He will still continue to contribute his blog, “My Wide World” for MassLive.com, as well as some on-air work at ESPN Radio 1450 AM ‘The Hall’, so he won’t be far from the media.

All of us at ABC40 and FOX 6 wish Scott the best of luck in his future endeavors.

    What a loss for Channels 40 and 6! Scott is so bright, articulate, personable and enthusiastic. He always asked the most thoughtful questions, and he brought out the best in everyone he interviewed. He could do sports and community interest segments with equal skill; a true Renaissance man in a world of broadcasting mediocrity. He brought class and stability with what were consistently the best segments on the news. Channel 40′s loss is WRSI’s gain. Whoever let him get away really made a big mistake. His loyal fans wish him the very best!
