Reporter
Minority business, professions, IBJ Daily

Olson joined IBJ as a reporter in December 1999, after a three-year stint at sister publication Indiana Lawyer. Gaining valuable knowledge about the legal community has enabled him to provide broad coverage of local law firms. He has been online reporter since early 2009 and has covered utilities, the professions, and minority and small businesses. Scott is an Illinois native and graduate of Western Illinois University—home of the mighty Leathernecks. He spent nearly four years at a small Illinois daily newspaper before joining The Republic in Columbus, Ind., in 1994. There, he covered the “courts and cops” beat, and reported news from nearby towns by traipsing through the hinterlands of southeastern Indiana. In his spare time, he enjoys reading history books, riding bicycles, running and—most importantly—watching baseball and cheering on the Chicago White Sox. Scott also serves on the Zionsville West Middle School PTO Board. He lives in Zionsville with his wife and two daughters, along with two cats and a spoiled Chihuahua.
