Story
Introduction

Scott McGrew has 20 years experience as a television reporter, 10 of them as a technology reporter.  His work has been seen on CNN, CNBC, MSNBC and the BBC.  He has been nominated for 10 Emmy Awards, but he's quick to point out he's never won any.

He has been dabbling in computers since his first Apple II. 

Scott was one of the few reporters in the world allowed to fly Combat Air Patrol as part of Operation Enduring Freedom following 9/11, when he flew backseat in an F-16 tailing civilian airliners.

He was also one of a corps of reporters to witness the last firing squad execution in the United States.  He wrote a piece about it for the London Daily Mail.

Scott reports on technology on the [San Francisco] Bay Area's NBC, hosts the technology roundtable show Press:Here and produces and reports for the syndicated high technology show TechNow.  He also joins sports radio hosts Murph, Mac and Gary Radnich on sports radio KNBR 680am on weekday mornings to talk business and technology.
