FOX 17 WZTV-TV welcomes Samantha Russell as our new Traffic Reporter providing Steer Clear Traffic Monday through Friday 4:30am-9am in FOX 17 This Morning.

"Our Steer Clear Traffic has become a daily necessity for viewers living in and around Nashville, and we conducted an extensive search to find the best talent possible to join our current roster of News professionals "says FOX 17 WZTV General Manager, Noreen Parker. "Samantha has a real passion for helping people navigate safely and quickly to their destinations. She is someone our viewers will come to count on and trust to find alternative routes to and from work!"

Russell was previously with KWTV in Oklahoma City, OK and most recently WBMA-tv in Birmingham, AL where viewers admired her traffic reporting skills so much that they gave her the nickname "Traffic Jam Sam." In her spare time she is also an avid cyclist and runner.
