George McDonald

West Alabama Newsroom Reporter

George McDonald joined CBS 8 in June 2005 as a reporter in the Montgomery Newsroom. In July 2007, he began reporting from the Alabama News Network West Alabama Newsroom in Selma, covering Dallas, Lowndes, Marengo, Perry and Wilcox Counties.

George arrived in Alabama from WTOK in Meridian, Mississippi, where he worked as a reporter/photographer. He began his career in television news at WJTV in Jackson, Mississippi, where he was an editor.

George enjoys reporting because he says you’re always learning things you might not otherwise learn, meeting people you wouldn’t otherwise meet and doing things you might not otherwise do, but says the best thing about being a reporter is the potential to have a positive impact in the lives of others.

A native of Chicago (South Side!), George is an alumnus of Tougaloo College and a member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. When he’s not working, George enjoys spending quality time with his family.
