Keith Russell

Keith Russell joined CBS 11 in March 2015 from WTXF in Philadelphia, where he hosted Eagles pre- and post-game shows for the 2014 season.

It was Russell’s second stint in Philadelphia, as he was the primary sports anchor at WPVI for 7 years, from 2005-2012.

There, he hosted a top-rated live weekly high school football show and anchored wall-to-wall coverage of live events such as the Philadelphia Phillies’ World Series Championship in 2008.

Prior to his time at WPVI, Russell spent more than five years as an anchor at ESPN. He also had stops as a sportscaster at CNN/HLN and a news anchor in Washington, D.C.

 When he’s not covering sports, Keith is an avid movie-watcher and bowler. You may run into him at the nearest discount store, adding to his reputation of being the biggest bargain shopper.
