Scott Maucione

Health Reporter

Scott is the Health Reporter for WYPR.

His interest in journalism started at a young age when he decided to write a magazine about his elementary school. Needless to say, the issues were limited. He did, however, go on to study Journalism and Political Science at the University of Maryland and then get his Master’s from American University in Applied Politics.

He spent nine years covering the military at Federal News Network and Inside Defense. There he covered everything from the mental health of service members to how the military is using artificial intelligence.

He is the winner of the Military Reporters and Editors Association Award for excellence in radio. His work has been published in The Washington Post and NPR.

In his spare time, he plays guitar, practices yoga and tries his best to cook some stellar seafood dishes.
