WKYT Weekend Anchor, Reporter

Olivia Russell is excited to back home in the Bluegrass State! She comes to WKYT after spending two years as a reporter for KNOE 8 News in Monroe, La.

Olivia grew up in Louisville, Ky. and graduated from Bellarmine University in 2017 with a degree in Communication.

Olivia’s journalism career started at Bellarmine. She was a sports writer for the Concord, a student-run newspaper. She was also an executive board member for Knights Nation. During her time at Bellarmine, Olivia was part of the Knights Softball team. She was named Academic All-Conference for three years as a student-athlete.

When she’s not reporting, you can catch Olivia with a softball bat in one hand and a cat in the other.

Olivia is happy to be in central Kentucky and sharing the community’s stories!

She looks forward to hearing your story ideas at Olivia.Russell@WKYT.com. You can also find her on Facebook (Olivia Russell WKYT) and Twitter (@ORussellNews).
