Tony Russell

Tony Russell joined the News On 6 Team in May 2013. Tony didn't come far from Tulsa, he was just down the road working as a reporter at the ABC Affiliate, KHBS/KHOG-TV in Fort Smith – Fayetteville, Arkansas. Since Fort Smith is one of many regional hubs in Eastern Oklahoma, Tony has already covered many Green Country stories. 

Tony is a 2010 graduate of the University of Mississippi where he received a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism. Originally from Saint Louis, Missouri, he has always been a Saint Louis Cardinals fan. 

Tony has been an amateur radio operator since 2000 and has held a technician class license since then. He also is very active in area Skywarn spotting and credits his interest in reporting to his ham radio hobby. In his spare time Tony is an avid swimmer and outdoorsman.

Tony and his photographer were recently awarded by the Arkansas Associated Press Association for their Spot News and Spot Photography coverage of a business fire in Vian, Oklahoma. In 2011 Tony also received an Associated Press award for his story on Police Pursuit policies.
