Randy Spieth is a multi-media journalist and reporter for Fox59/CBS4, who joined the team in February of 2017.
Randy comes to Indianapolis with more than ten years of experience. A native of Indiana’s first state capitol, Corydon, Randy spent time in Nebraska and Michigan before moving back to his home state in 2011.
Randy spent four years working in Fort Wayne, mostly in news but did frequently help out the station’s sports department, too.
He’s excited about his move to central Indiana. Randy has family who lives in Hendricks County and Monroe County. He’s also an Indiana University graduate. He studied Telecommunications while in Bloomington.
He’d like to cover at least one story in each of Indiana’s 92 counties.
The number one question he gets these days is if he is related to golfer Jordan Spieth. He says he doesn’t believe so, Jordan doesn’t play golf like any family member Randy knows. Randy adds Jordan’s success has helped everyone correctly pronounce his last name – which he appreciates.
