About Scott Whatley

Scott Whatley is a Radio Show Host, Professional Emcee, Consumer Advocate, and Television & Radio Broadcasting Media Executive with over 30 years experience helping business owners grow through targeted media, radio, and business development.

Scott is an outdoor enthusiast and avid outdoorsman. Whether it’s sitting in a goose pit, upland bird hunting, big game hunting, stalking a cape buffalo in South Africa, or fishing for halibut in Ketchikan Alaska, hunting and fishing is in Scott’s blood and heritage. He founded Sportsman of Colorado Radio Show in 2012 to combine his passion for hunting and the outdoors with his expertise in broadcast media.

In addition, Scott is the Owner and Host of Haystack Help Radio, a consumer advocacy and advertising company, founded in 2009, for exclusive businesses in Colorado.

Scott is also passionate about advocating for Seniors and their Caregivers. In 2012 he founded Referrals For Seniors, a Website Referral List, Radio Show, and Consumer Help Center created specifically for Seniors and Caregivers to access trustworthy businesses in Colorado. Companies are thoroughly background checked in order to be included in the www.ReferralsForSeniors.com referral list. The mission of Referrals For seniors is to serve as a resource and advocate in areas of importance to the ethical treatment and well-being of the Senior community and Caregivers.

I was raised in Dallas, Texas and I am grateful that my Dad, Bear Whatley, introduced me to the heritage of hunting, fishing, and the outdoor life at an early age. At age 6 with a 30-30, I killed my first buck with my Dad by my side. I am thankful he taught me to love and respect the outdoors, safety in the woods and at the range, and to always share your passion for the great outdoors with others. Whether it was jackrabbit hunting, squirrel hunting, waterfowl, pheasant, stalking that big Colorado Elk, or tracking a Kudu on a South Africa Safari hunt, I would not be the avid outdoorsman I am today without my Dad taking the time to teach me how to be a responsible outdoorsman.
