DENVER — Scotty Gange is the Prep Sports Reporter at 9NEWS in Denver, Colorado.
He anchors the Prep Rally on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
In May of 2020, Scotty graduated a year early from ASU’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications, got a job at 9NEWS and then turned 21 – all in the same week.
Soon after, Scotty was recognized as the 2020 Jim Nantz Award Winner, awarded to the nation’s top collegiate sportscaster.
“There’s just a lot of things that I see there that are just way beyond your years so from right here, from me, I’m just so honored to have your name on this award,” Nantz told Gange during the broadcast.
In his time at ASU he was the in-stadium Jumbotron host for major sports. That included football crowds as large as 75,000 people.
Scotty is from San Diego and graduated from Torrey Pines High School. He was a three-sport varsity athlete in school (football, baseball, track) and was captain of the football team and awarded most spirited in his senior class in 2017. Although he is most proud of his ‘Best Smile’ award in the 6th grade.
Scotty starts the majority of his shows with “It’s a good day to have a great day, hi everybody!” which are nods to his family, friends and mentor.
Gange looks to bring joy and positivity in everything he does. His reasoning is that sports are fun, so sports reporting should also be fun.
He is the youngest of three boys (Christian, 24, Charlie, 27) and has a fish named Waffles.
Scotty is a proud below-average snowboarder and a bigger fan of "The Office" than you.
Gange calls Denver “The Ver” — his friends say it’s dumb, but he’s sticking to it.
