Humorous, Honest, Historic | Veteran Broadcaster, Tweed Scott visits with the people and personalities who make up the Great State of Texas
Hi   there!   I'm   Tweed   Scott.   Welcome   to   my   website.   Here   you   can   buy   my   three-time   national   award-winning   book,   "Texas   in   Her   Own   Words."   If   you are   interested   in   booking   me   as   a   speaker,   you   can   learn   everything   you   need   to   know   about   me   &   my   presentations.   Come   on   in   and   explore.   I   bet you just might learn a thing or two about Texas you never knew before. Thank you for dropping by. Take a seat on the bench if you like. There   is   a   little   bit   about   me   you   should   know.   I   am   a   retired   broadcaster   of   thirty-one   years   turned   author   and   professional   speaker.   Anyone   who knows   me   knows   I   have   a   deep   rooted   passion   for   Texas.   Although   I   wasn’t   born   in   Texas,   I   have   been   here   longer   than   many   native   Texans.   You see, I didn’t get here as quick as I could. I got here as quick as I got sent. I   grew   up   about   thirty   miles   from   where   they   filmed   the   movie,   “On   Golden   Pond”,   smack   dab   in   the   middle   of   New   Hampshire.   I   joined   the   US   Navy to   see   the   world.   I   left   for   boot   camp   the   morning   after   my   graduation   from   high   school.   Within   seven   months   I   found   myself   permanently   stationed about   two   miles   outside   of   beautiful   downtown   Kingsville,   TX!   For   a   boy   from   Northern   New   England   this   was   a   cultural   shock!   I   had   never   been anyplace that was THAT flat, that stayed THAT hot for THAT long in my life! Thus began my life and experiences with Texas. I’ve always had a love of Texas but having written a book about her has found my love evolve into an absolute passion. I love all things Texan. When   I   chose   to   wrap   up   my   broadcasting   career,   I   turned   to   writing   as   my   creative   vent.   I   wrote   for   various   magazines   early   in   my   writing   career   but it   wasn’t   long   before   I   embarked   on   my   exploration   of   my   adopted   home   state.   I   married   a   native   Texan   not   long   after   coming   to   Texas.   One   thing would   often   come   up   in   conversation   and   that   was   something   akin   to,   “Well,   it’s   not   as   though   you   were   Born   in   Texas!”   When   she   told   our   son   that he had something I would never have--that he was BORN in Texas--that did it! I   became   convinced   that   Texans   are   born   with   an   extra   gene.   There   is   a   T-Chromosome   and   I’m   gonna   go   find   it.   That   is   exactly   what   I   did.   What’s more I found it! Who   knew   that   Texas   in   Her   Own   Words   would   turn   into   the   little   book   that   could?   The   book   was   out   a   month   when   I   realized   it   had   completely changed   my   business   model.   More   and   more   meeting   organizers   asked   me   to   come   and   speak   to   their   groups   about   the   book   and   more   especially, Texas   herself.   If   you   would   like   to   learn   more   about   the   book   please   go   to   the Texas   in   Her   Own   Words   page   and   if   you'd   like   to   learn   more   about   me coming to speak to one of your groups check out the Tweed the Speaker page. Meet you inside.
