Good Day anchor

Russell Rhodes

Russell Rhodes is a co-anchor of FOX 13's Good Day Tampa Bay from 6 to 10 a.m. He joined the FOX 13 team in September of 1994.

For years, Russell was the roving reporter on Good Day.

"Then," Russell says, "they approached me about being an anchor. People always ask me if I miss feature reporting. Yes, I do. The anchor work is a new challenge. I have to use different muscles."

Russell was born and raised in Paris, Texas. He had planned to be an actor or singer. When he realized there was no way he could make a living at either of the two, he decided to go into something else: broadcast journalism.

Russell attended the University of Oklahoma. Why? His dad went to school there and said he would pay for the entire thing if his kid would follow in his footsteps.

Along the way, Russell has worked in Ada, Oklahoma; Abilene and San Antonio, Texas; Minneapolis, and finally, Tampa Bay.
