Harrison Golden is a multimedia journalist and occasional anchor for Local 33 and Fox 44. Since joining the team in April 2017, he has covered major stories across Louisiana, including Hurricane Harvey, the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise, and the federal investigation into Alton Sterling's death. He shoots and edits his own video, while updating stories throughout the day using social media and other online platforms.
He comes to Baton Rouge from FOX News in his home state of New York. He wrote and produced for SiriusXM's FOX News Headlines 24/7 channel, overseeing fast-paced yet detailed national newscasts.
Harrison got his first news job while still in high school, working at WTBQ radio in suburban Orange County, N.Y. There he anchored news updates and even played music on occasion. He then made a stop at CBS News, working behind the scenes at the "Evening News" while attending The New School in New York City. He graduated with a communications degree in 2014.
His journalism has also extended to the written word, with works appearing in USA Today, TODAY.com, CNN.com, and Interview.
Outside of work, Harrison is a proud audiophile, consuming masterpieces from The Velvet Underground, A Tribe Called Quest, Chris Stapleton, and geniuses in between. He just might be the biggest public radio fan in Louisiana, unafraid to shout the answers to questions asked on "Wait... Wait... Don't Tell Me!" (Sometimes he's even correct!) He also loves dominating the karaoke stage and curling up with a good history book every so often.
