It was while growing up in Stone Mountain, Ga., that Russell P fell in love with radio as a way to connect with his dad, who was an avid listener. A graduate of the University of Georgia, Russell P has now been a radio broadcaster for over 20 years. From Christian music to soft rock, from news talk to sports talk, he has done it all.
Russell P first came to Crawford Media Group in 2008, and he has enjoyed working alongside some of the best radio talent in Birmingham ever since. In 2020, Russell P partnered with long-time friend, Jessica Borklund, to debut a new afternoon show called A Closer Look with Russell P & Jessica, weekday afternoons. After two years award-winning years together, Russell P and Jessica made the joyful move to mornings. Joyful Noise with Russell P & Jessica, Monday – Saturday from 5:00 – 10:00 a.m., premiered June 13th, 2022.
Although Russell P has been involved in Christian ministry ranging from youth, to college, to working in a retirement living community, radio always brings him back. “What I love about radio is the opportunity to make a positive impact on a great number of lives each day,” he says. “If I can put a smile on someone’s face as they start their day, then I’ve done my job,”
Joyful Noise is a unique opportunity for Russell P to combine his love for God and his concern for people in a helpful, cheerful, edifying way. “I love that I can share my weaknesses and challenges on the air and people can relate to that,” he says. “I want to connect with our listeners, even if we never meet face-to-face and talk about how we can all be better individuals.”
A self-proclaimed minimalist whom you will almost always find in a black T-shirt, Russell P enjoys spending time with his twins, Charlie and Sarah, going to movies, playing tennis and basketball, going on walks and enjoying the latest in auto innovations. You can often find him listening to the spoken word, from sermons to lectures to TED talks to learn from other great communicators.
