About Scott Pelley
American television journalist, Scott Cameron Pelley, has an estimated net worth of $15 million. After graduating from Texas Tech and holding brief tenures at such Lone Star stations as KXAS-TV Dallas and KSEL-TV Lubbock, the broadcast journalist ascended to greater prestige as chief White House correspondent for the CBS Evening News and as on-air correspondent for 60 Minutes II, then joined the regular lineup of the latter’s parent series in 2004. His resumé placed a particularly strong emphasis on war correspondence in such battle-strewn regions as Iraq, Kuwait, and Afghanistan, and on politics, with coverage of a myriad of presidential elections. Pelley accomplished an astonishing journalistic coup by reporting from one of the World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001, as the tower fell.
He has since won several awards for his journalism, especially for his coverage overseas of America’s conflicts in the Middle East. He was born on July 28, 1957 in San Antonio, Texas.
