A Treasure in Atlanta

Rose Scott is a rarity these days. Trustworthy, does her research, shares the findings without bias and from a place of knowledge and compassion. She needs to teach a master class in journalism to others.

The main reason I listen to WABE

Rose Scott is what in-depth, creative interviewing is all about. Thank you for opening up a real dialogue on local/regional/national issues.

Rose Scott is a Atlanta treasure

Rose Scott is one of the few reporters that ranks with Gwen Ifill for Atlanta Metro news. Honest and fair reporting on all subjects even the racial injustices to brown people swept under the rug from the 1900 forward.
