In his career, he has interviewed every president since Gerald Ford, and been executive producer on programming such as “Road to the White House” series, the Washington Journal, and the podcast “The Weekly.” Scully has taught at the University of Denver, Pace University, George Mason University and the University of California-DC Program.
