Russell Jones

Reporter/Anchor

Birmingham, Ala.

Russell Jones is thrilled to be back in his hometown of Birmingham. Russell graduated from Hoover High School and earned his broadcasting degree from the University of Alabama.

Russell is a reporter weekdays on Good Day Alabama and anchors weekend mornings.

Prior to joining the WBRC FOX6 News team, Russell was a former morning reporter/fill-in anchor for KOCO 5 News in Oklahoma City. During the wee morning hours, Oklahomans watched Russell on-site at breaking news across the metro area. Later in the morning, Russell delighted audiences with his friendly, lighthearted in-studio and on-location interviews.

Russell was a former reporter in Panama City, Florida for WMBB. During his time in Florida, Russell was also a fill-in weekend anchor and producer and enjoyed telling stories and building relationships with his viewers.

Russell is a fan of all sports, but he's a huge college football fan. You might be surprised to find out whom he roots for. Just ask him! Russell met his wife while performing Shakespeare in Homewood Park. They have a 10-year-old son who was also born in Birmingham and a 120-lb. lap dog named Ghost.
