Jack Royer is an Emmy-nominated journalist who serves as weeknight evening co-anchor at CBS 42 News at 5, 6, and 10.
Royer’s work covering Alabama has been recognized by the Alabama Broadcaster’s Association, the Associated Press and also earned him an EMMY Nomination. In 2017, Jack won “Best News Feature” at the Alabama Broadcasters Association ABBY Awards for his ride along with Tuscaloosa Sanitation Workers.
Jack previously served as a weeknight anchor and reporter at WVUA 23 News. While there, he covered the scandal and resignation of Governor Robert Bentley along with other political reporting at the state and local level. His 2015 profile of former Alabama Football Coach Gene Stallings earned a Telly Award.
Jack grew up in the news business just a few doors down at WVTM, learning from his father, a veteran news anchor in Birmingham. With more than a decade of exposure to the news business, Jack’s experience has kindled his passion for telling honest and fair stories that impact the people of Alabama. Jack began his professional broadcasting career broadcasting live high school football for 97.7 The Peach WHPH, and was awarded the Judges Award of Merit from the Alabama Broadcaster’s Association for Best Small Market Sportscaster in 2012.
Jack Royer is an absolute news junkie, but also finds time to be a fan of New York Yankees baseball and of course, the Alabama Crimson Tide. You’ll find him watching a game or spending time with his family when you don’t see him on CBS 42.
Watch Jack alongside Sherri Jackson weeknights on CBS 42.
