Bill Williams Profile
Bill Williams is an American television reporter/anchor working for WBIR-TV in Knoxville, Tennessee. He has worked for WBIR since the year 1977.
Bill Williams Career
Williams serves at WBIR-TV as Anchor Emeritus and special reporter. He was called back to the anchor desk for most of 2006 when his former replacement, Ted Hall, left Channel 10. Now, he has officially “retired” again, although Bill will still be seen on Channel 10 broadcasting some of his favorite projects.
Every year, he co-hosts the Children’s Miracle Network Telethon, and he continues to work with “Mission of Hope,” an outreach initiative to help individuals imprisoned in poverty in remote Appalachia’s highlands. In 1996, Bill launched the “Mission of Hope” in response to the news he had broadcast on the plight of the underprivileged in the highlands.
Through Monday’s Child adoption program, Bill made a difference in the lives of hundreds of young people. Bill first began the series in 1980. Thousands of the special needs youngsters he introduced on the show have since found permanent homes and loving families. The “Silver Circle Award” from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, as well as the Honorary Doctor of Divinity Degree conferred on him by Carson Newman College, are among the many honors Bill has won from the broadcast business and the community at large. Bill’s semi-retirement will be far from “retiring,” as he continues to work on initiatives at Channel 10 and speaks to community and church organizations on a regular basis.
