ABOUT Scott Rogowsky

Whether you know him from his wildly popular tenure as the original host of HQ Trivia, his anchoring of the live, MLB whip-around show ChangeUp on DAZN, his own, critically-acclaimed late-night talk show Running Late with Scott Rogowsky (and the pandemic-inspired spin-off IsoLate Night), his two shows on Verizon’s Go90 (Start Talkin’ produced for Complex Networks and Weird World of Sports produced for Whistle), or his current gigs helming Wild Cards on NTWRK and the Business Casual podcast from Morning Brew, Scott Rogowsky has quickly made a name for himself across the media landscape as the host with most.

To the tens of millions of people around the world who joined the live, daily HQ Trivia broadcasts, Scott became a household name — outside of the Rogowsky household, even! — and was affectionately called “Quiz Daddy” by his fans (a nickname he finds equal parts flattering and unsettling). Admired for his quick wit and improvisational panache while hosting the viral app sensation, Scott racked up hundreds of thousands of new followers while being invited to make guest appearances on Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Today Show, Good Morning America, Live with Kelly & Ryan, The Voice, ABC’s New Year’s Rockin Eve, FOX’s New Year’s Eve with Steve Harvey, and most importantly to Scott, MLB’s All-Star Celebrity Softball Game broadcast on ESPN.

When he’s not on camera — and when there isn’t a global pandemic raging — Scott is on stage at comedy clubs and college campuses performing stand-up or hosting Running Late, his self-produced talk show on which he has interviewed over 400 celebrity guests since 2011 including Jon Hamm, Paul Rudd, Steve Buscemi, Sarah Silverman, John Oliver, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Amy Sedaris, Nick Kroll, Paul Dano, Matt Groening, Kevin Nealon, Reggie Watts, Dick Cavett, Jim Gaffigan, Dan Rather, Janeane Garofalo, Abbi Jacobson & Ilana Glazer, and Desus & Mero.
