BRAINTREE -- Scot Landry could not have known that his college extra-curricular activity would lead him to be host of "The Good Catholic Life," the Archdiocese of Boston's radio program, which celebrated its one year anniversary on March 9.
As an undergrad at Harvard, the Lowell native looked for an outlet for his athletic side.
"When I got to Harvard, being 5'6" and not that fast, I wasn't going to play any of the sports on an intercollegiate level, although I was very involved in intramurals," he said.
Instead, he focused his passion for sports into broadcasting Harvard basketball and football for a college radio station.
"Those that I had learned (radio) from, who graduated a couple of years prior to me, went on to CBS Sports, and places like that, but they could never get in front of the mic," he said.
After earning his bachelor's degree and attending Harvard Business School, he spent a year as a research fellow. At that point, Landry made a practical decision for his early career.
"I soon came to the conclusion that I'll just go and get a traditional job that helps pay back the loans that I incurred going to a place like that," Landry said.
He said the love for broadcasting stayed with him as he progressed in his career.
