Rosanna Scotto has been actively pursuing an onscreen career for nearly 40 years, since graduating in 1980. She has spent most of her time on WNYW FOX 5 during the course of those years.
Of course, having a long-running on-screen career meant she had developed a devoted following. Fans have long been intrigued about her age and where she was born.
Rosanna Scotto – Who Is She?

Her career in television began in Atlanta, where the New York native grew up. She went on to work on shows like The Morning Show and WABC TV’s Good Morning New York.

She began her work after college at WTBS, Ted Turner’s UHF television station in Atlanta. She was a reporter for two local programs at the time, as well as an associate producer for the station’s evening newscast.
Scotto secured a job as a correspondent for WABC’s Live with Regis and Kathie Lee not long after (previously known as Good Morning New York). She joined Witness News a year later and served on the show until 1986, when she joined WNYW FOX 5 News.
