Andrea Williams is bringing her vast broadcasting experience to TMJ4 News in Milwaukee as a specialty reporter.
Williams worked as a radio personality during morning drive in Milwaukee for 25 years, 20 of them at Jammin’ 98.3 (WJMR-FM) where she also served as the News/Public Affairs Director for the Milwaukee Radio Group.
Williams’ focus will be finding those people in the community who don’t always make the news but have important stories to tell.
A native of Louisville, Kentucky, Williams moved to Milwaukee in 1996 to work at V100.7 (WKKV-FM). In addition to her radio career, she spent 10 seasons as the Bucks original in-arena host. She also hosted and executive produced “Our Issues Milwaukee” and “Connect MKE” on Milwaukee’s CW 18 and My 24.
Williams received her bachelor’s degree in radio/TV communications from Central State University (Ohio) and is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., and the Wisconsin Chapter of NABJ (National Association of Black Journalists).
“I’ve had some amazing opportunities working in Milwaukee and joining the TMJ4 News team is definitely at the top of the list,” Williams said. “I plan to continue connecting with the good people of this city and look forward to telling their stories that shine a light on what truly makes Milwaukee great.”
“We feel very fortunate to bring someone with Andrea’s knowledge of the community and broadcasting experience to our newsroom,” TMJ4 News Director Tim Vetscher said. “She adds a different perspective and approach to storytelling and is very plugged in to what makes this city tick and where there is room for improvement.”
Williams joins TMJ4 in May and will begin on air in early June.
