GACFE Luncheon Meeting September 7, 2018
Speaker: Randy Travis, FOX 5
Topics: The Art of Avoiding Fake News
Randy Travis is a native Georgian who joined FOX 5 Atlanta in 1990. In 1994 he moved to the station's prestigious investigative unit, the FOX 5 I-Team. Since then, his stories have closed down businesses that misled the public, exposed government waste and corruption and even sent people to prison.
Before joining FOX 5, Randy reported for WMC-TV in Memphis, TN; WYFF-TV in Greenville, SC and WMAZ-TV in Macon. His first job in journalism came in 1979 as a sportswriter for his hometown newspaper, the Athens Banner-Herald. Randy also worked fulltime as the sports editor for the Athens Observer in 1982 while completing his journalism degree at the University of Georgia.
Randy has won more than 20 regional Emmy awards for his investigative work. Twice he has been honored with the national Edward R. Murrow Award. He's also the recipient of the Henry W. Grady Mid-Career Alumni Award from the University of Georgia. In 2015, Randy was named to the Silver Circle, a lifetime achievement honor given by the Southeast Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
Randy was diagnosed at 29 with Type 1 Diabetes. He turned to running to control his disease. He's become an avid marathoner and has competed in every Peachtree Road Race since 1993. Randy is also a lifelong Braves fan, a choice that somehow has had no negative effect on his happy marriage.
