Sheldon Haygood began his career as a Sports Reporter at WBRC FOX6 News back in 1994. Overtime, Sheldon developed into one of the city's favorite weekend sports anchors. In 2019 he began the transition into news and is busy now helping with Good Day Alabama in the morning and as the anchor for WBRC FOX6 News at Noon. Sheldon also enjoys doing profile stories on amazing people for wbrc.com. Oh, and by the way during the Fall Sheldon has plenty of fun co-hosting SIDELINE, our high school football show on Friday nights.
Sheldon grew up all over as the son in a military family. His desire to cover sports as a career grew out of his love of sports in general. During his high school years, Sheldon was involved in team sports. But once out, he tried his hand at radio, working as a disc jockey. He received his degree in Journalism from Southwest Texas State University.
His first stint in television landed him a job in Midland, Texas at KMID-TV. There, he worked as a reporter and weekend anchor. From there, Sheldon moved to Lubbock as Sports Director. Then an offer from WHOA-TV (now WNCF-TV) in Montgomery, Alabama took him from his home state. WBRC came knocking in 1994, and Sheldon has been here ever since.
Sheldon is a cancer survivor and is proponent of Prostate Cancer and getting an early diagnosis. Sheldon is married and the father of six incredible children.
