Scott Friedman NBC 5
Friedman is a Senior Investigative Reporter for NBC 5 in Fort Worth, Texas. He leads the “NBC 5 Investigates” team that exposes critical safety concerns, uncovers government waste, and holds officials accountable.
His investigative reporting has been recognized with some of broadcasting’s top national honors including a Peabody Award, five national Edward R. Murrow Awards, an Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE) award, two national SPJ Sigma Delta Chi Awards, and a national News and Documentary Emmy for outstanding regional investigative report. His investigations have also been featured on NBC Nightly News and Today on NBC.
Friedman’s Peabody Award-winning investigation of financial troubles at Dallas County Schools (DCS) exposed a web of corruption, staggering financial mismanagement, hidden personal relationships, and conflicts of interest inside an agency that transported tens of thousands of children to school each day. The Texas Legislature, governor, and voters acted swiftly to close DCS and the superintendent who ran the agency pleaded guilty to accepting $3 million of bribes and kickbacks in exchange for government contracts.
For more than a year, Friedman’s team investigated care for injured, active-duty U.S. Army soldiers, in partnership with The Dallas Morning News. The series uncovered hundreds of complaints from injured troops describing mistreatment, harassment, verbal abuse, and a lack of care from commanders of U.S. Army Warrior Transition Units (WTUs). Within days of the station’s first reports, the U.S. Army ordered new training for commanders of all 25 WTUs worldwide, aimed at better treating injured troops with dignity and respect. The U.S. House Armed Services Committee also ordered a Government Accountability Office (GAO) investigation.
Friedman’s nine-month-long investigation of crashes and injuries caused by police officers using dashboard-mounted computers while driving led to changes in local police department policies, and became training material for law enforcement agencies across the country.
Friedman joined KXAS-TV in 2006 reporting and later anchoring the station’s weekday morning newscast, NBC 5 Today. In 2012, he helped launch “NBC 5 Investigates.” Previously, he was an investigative reporter and news anchor at WTMJ-TV (NBC) in Milwaukee and a reporter at WNDU-TV (NBC) in South Bend, Indiana.
