From October 1955 through April 1956, Scott Vincent was narrator/host for "New Sounds for You," a new-concept broadcast designed to compete with NBC's "Monitor." Local papers reported: "Because the United States Information Agency required a new series combining entertainment, quality of production and a comprehensive format, it requested permission from ABC to transmit "New Sounds For You" regularly on a world-wide scale." The USIA also beamed "New Sounds" behind the Iron Curtain. The premiere broadcast of "New Sounds for You" was named "Outstanding Broadcast" by Radio-Television Daily in 1955. Scott also hosted another ABC Radio program in 1956, "America's Town Meeting of the Air." "Town Meeting" tackled issues of the day such as: "Is the government controlled by Big Business."

In 1957, Vincent was show announcer for "The Merv Griffin Show," broadcast live from the Elysee Theater in New York as part of the "Live and Lively" campaign for the, then, newly formed American Broadcasting Network. Scott Vincent's radio credits from 1958 include "The Constance Bennett Show".
