Russell spent a vast period of time working as a journalist on many of Australia’s oil and gas projects including the Barrow and Veranus Islands. To further develop his knowledge of the resources sector, Russell has travelled on iron ore trains, visited underground mines and toured LNG plants. Thanks to this experience Russell now possesses a strong affinity with Australia’s resources sector.
Thanks to his talents as a journalist, Russell was invited to join 720 ABC Perth in 2005 to report on business matters and later was given his own program as the host of ‘Drive’. Drive is a segment that is aired weekday afternoons from 3pm to 6pm and includes interviews, news, sports, music and of course a lot of laughs. Russell spent almost a decade hosting Drive on 720 ABC Perth before deciding to move on to focus on community engagement work through his role as an MC. In this time Russell has built a loyal fan base that to this day still reminisce about the times ‘Woolfy’ entertained them on their drive home. During his time as the host of ‘Drive’ Russell also worked for a period of five years as the ‘ABC TV News’ weather presenter bringing not just the weather updates but also a sunny disposition into Australian homes.
