Mona Scott 
writes a popular daily broadcast grammar column in NewsBlues called "Mrs. B's Grammar Yammer."  She has also published a textbook on grammar for broadcast news.

A former primary anchor at Cleveland's WKYC and two Columbus stations, WCMH and WBNS, Mona also anchored at Orlando's WKMG.

She retired from television in 1998, after a 28-year career. Mona is a graduate of Bethany College and is a former English teacher.

The neighborhood cows, horses, and dogs know Mona. They come running when they see her walk down the road with her bag of alfalfa cubes and dog biscuits. She's the bovine, equine, canine treat lady. And proud of it.


Mike and Mona live in horse country near the North Central Florida town of Reddick.
