Carol Scott graced the television airways in Omaha, beginning in the mid-1970’s, when she co-anchored the Six O’ Clock and Ten O’ Clock News on KMTV 3 with Jeff Jordan and Jim Kelter.
During that time, she also became an “unofficial” co-host of the highly rated and successful “Creature Feature” horror movie program, which was broadcast on Saturday nights on KMTV Channel 3 starring “Dr. San Guinary” (KMTV’s John Jones).
Sadly, Carol developed Parkinson’s Disease, passing away in November of 2021.
This past September, her friends, family, former co-workers and fans gathered together to celebrate Carol’s life. Hosted by Boomer Radio’s Dave Wingert and the legendary character “Dr. San Guinary,” the event raised $985.00; Bronco’s then donated 10% of that day’s sales from both locations ($1,175.00), bringing the total raised to $2,160.00 for Parkinson’s Nebraska in Carol’s memory.
I want to thank Bronco’s Restaurants for this event,” said Dr. Emmy Smith of Parkinson’s Nebraska. “I met some remarkable people and heard so many fun stories about Carol Scott, who we were honoring, but it was also such an amazing opportunity to share with people what Parkinson’s Nebraska is doing, or what we are for those who did not know.”
Carol’s KMTV 3 co-anchor Jim Kelter was also in attendance, sharing stories of working with Carol along with many other radio and television celebrities. The character of “Dr. San Guinary” (Christopher Palmer) was also there to help raise money for this worthy cause.
Special thanks to KMTV 3 (Carol’s professional home for years) for coming out and covering the event.
“We were honored to partner with Parkinson’s Nebraska for this very special day,” said Blake Barnes, Bronco’s General Manager. “I want to say thank you again to everyone who came out and participated, and next year we hope to make it even bigger.”
