Fox 29 sports anchor Colleen Wolfe is leaving Fox 29 for the NFL Network according to various sources. Her final day is on Sunday, and she'll start with the NFL Network on Tuesday. The Drexel grad had been with Fox 29 since 2012. Wolfe was a popular figure in the market, making it all the way to the quarterfinals of Crossing Broad's Philly Sports Media Field of 64, upsetting NBC10's John Clark and CSN's Marshall Harris and Neil Hartman.

Replacing Wolfe, is former 6ABC sports anchor Keith Russell, who returns to the Philadelphia market. Russell, a West Oak Lane native, spent seven years with 6 before departing for Washington, D.C. The Central High grad, who left the market in 2012, did a stint at ESPN before his 6ABC tenure. 

Russell will join Howard Eskin beginning next week as a co-anchor for "Game Day Live." He will also anchor the stations Friday and Saturday night newscasts at 6 and 10 p.m., in addition to contributing to the "Sports Sunday" show.
