Anzio Williams left KCRA in Sacramento last month after five years as the station’s news director to pursue “bigger and better things.” And he got just that as NBC O&O WCAU in Philadelphia today introduced him as its new vice president of news.
“I’m so proud to be part of the hardest working news team in Philadelphia,” Williams said in a statement. “This is a great news town, and I cannot wait be a part of this community.”
“We’re thrilled to welcome Anzio to our leadership team,” said WCAU president and general manager Eric Lerner, announcing the hiring. “He has a distinguished record of accomplishments as a news manager and as a proven leader. He is a great addition to our team.”
Before leaving KCRA, Williams spent 14 years with Hearst, serving as news director at WDSU in New Orleans, and assistant ND at WESH in Orlando and WCNC in Charlotte.
