By Kevin Eck 

Before Brenda Wood stepped down from the 11 p.m. newscast at Atlanta NBC affiliate WXIA, she took a moment to introduce her successor.

Russell will sit in the late news anchor chair starting tonight a 11 p.m. “And I know it will be in good hands,” said Wood during last night’s newscast.

Wood will continue anchoring at 5 and 6 p.m. until her retirement in February.
