Randy Travis Biography

Since then, Travis’ stories have led to businesses closing that misled the public, exposed government waste, and corruption, and even sparked criminal investigations that ultimately sent people to prison.

Randy Travis Career

Travis’ biggest accomplishment, though, was to keep the innocent from being jailed in the first place. A series of narrations in 2018 about police roadside drug test kits revealed how people wound up wrongly jailed because the tests falsely determined they had drugs in their car.

Travis’ investigation discovered 145 false positives in Georgia in just one year. That project, “$2 Tests: Bad Arrests,” prompted law enforcement companies worldwide to check their drug test package policies, with some dropping the use of them completely. That investigation as well won the prestigious 2018 Peabody Award, one of only 30 honorees from around the world.

Over the years, his investigative work has as well garnered two national Edward R. Murrow awards, plus more than 20 regional Emmy awards. He is as well the recipient of the Henry W. Grady Mid-Career Alumni Award from the University of Georgia. Randy was named to the Silver Circle, a lifetime achievement honor given by the Southeast Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in 2015.

Prior to joining FOX 5, he reported for WMC-TV in Memphis, TN; WYFF-TV in Greenville, SC, and WMAZ-TV in Macon. Travis’ first professional job in journalism came in 1979 as a sportswriter for his hometown newspaper, the Athens Banner-Herald. He as well worked full-time as a sports editor for the Athens Observer in 1982 while completing his journalism degree at the University of Georgia.
