Randy Travis Career
Travis is an investigative reporter for FOX 5 Atlanta. His biggest accomplishment, though, was to keep the innocent from being jailed in the first place. A series of stories in 2018 about police roadside drug test kits revealed how people wound up wrongly jailed because the tests falsely determined they had drugs in their car. Travis’ investigation discovered 145 false positives in Georgia in just one year. That project, “$2 Tests: Bad Arrests,” prompted law enforcement agencies worldwide to review their drug test kit policies, with some dropping the use of them completely. That investigation as well won the prestigious 2018 Peabody Award, one of only 30 honorees from around the world.
Over the years, his investigative work has as well garnered two national Edward R. Murrow awards, plus more than 20 regional Emmy awards. He is as well the recipient of the Henry W. Grady Mid-Career Alumni Award from the University of Georgia.
