Keller Russell joins TODAY'S TMJ4 as a reporter from a position as a weekend anchor/reporter at KOLN, the CBS affiliate in Lincoln, Nebraska. Prior to joining KOLN, Keller was a dayside assignment editor at WSMV, the top-rated NBC affiliate in Nashville, Tennessee, where she also did some producing and occasional reporting. Keller took an unusual path to WSMV. She’s a huge country music fan, and she interned with Country Music Television in Nashville. She later did radio reporting for the network, and for KZPK, the CMT radio affiliate in St. Cloud, MN.
Keller graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BS in Mass Communications from St. Cloud State University in Minnesota. She grew up in a small town in Minnesota, so she knows the Midwest (and our climate) well.
