Tom Roussey Reporter
Tom Roussey joined ABC7/WJLA-TV as a reporter in December 2011, returning to the DC area after spending a decade moving up and down the East Coast pursuing his journalism career.
Tom grew up in Silver Spring and is a proud graduate of Paint Branch High School in Burtonsville. He's also a proud Terrapin, receiving a journalism degree from the University of Maryland.
Before coming to ABC7, Tom reported for WBTV in Charlotte, North Carolina. Prior to that, he reported from the Naples office of WBBH in Fort Myers, Florida. Tom started his career at WVIR in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Tom loves being a reporter because of all the people he gets to meet, places he gets to go, and things he gets to experience while out on a story.
Tom is a native of Coatesville, Pennsylvania, a small steel mill town about 35 miles west of Philadelphia. While growing up there he used to wake up in the morning to the sound of Amish horse and buggies clip clopping down his street.
He moved to Silver Spring when he was 12. His parents, sister, brother-in-law and niece all still live there.
In his spare time Tom volunteers with the teen group at Grace Community Church in Arlington. He loves reading, weightlifting, and softball. He's also a huge Maryland Terrapins basketball and football fan, and is a die-hard fan of the Philadelphia Phillies and Eagles.
