Xavier Harris

Xavier joined the WFLA team in March of 2022 as a reporter. He is from Montgomery, Alabama, and is a huge Alabama Crimson Tide fan. (Roll Tide) Xavier is excited to cover stories in the Sunshine State.

Before joining 8 On Your Side, Xavier was a reporter for the NBC affiliate WVTM 13 in Birmingham, Alabama. While there he covered stories ranging from severe weather to city leaders caught using racial slurs and more. Before then he was an Anchor/Reporter in Tupelo, Mississippi, where he covered the death of Aretha Franklin and Elvis Presley’s birthplace.

As a child, Xavier was always the talkative, theatrical child, and somehow those traits stuck with him into adulthood which led him to the career path he is in now.

He has five years of journalism experience and has always had a passion for telling stories and being the voice to the voiceless. 

Xavier is a three-time graduate of Troy University where he holds a bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism and two Master’s in Strategic Communication and Human Resources.

When he is not reporting, Xavier spends most of his time and money collecting sneakers ranging from Nike, Adidas, and Jordans. Xavier is a proud member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. and the National Association of Black Journalists.

If you see Xavier out say hello and tell him where you can find the trendiest sneakers and of course any stories ideas or email him at xharris@wfla.com
