News Director Anzio Williams Leaving KCRA

Anzio Williams, who has been the news director at Sacramento’s KCRA since 2007, is set to leave the Hearst-owned station next Monday.

KCRA general manager Elliott Troshinsky announced Williams’s departure in an email to staff this week, saying that the veteran news director “has expressed a desire to pursue some other career interests and opportunities.”

Williams, who has been with Hearst for 14 years, joined KCRA after two years as news director at WDSU in New Orleans. Before that, he was the assistant ND at WESH in Orlando and at WCNC in Charlotte.

“I believe what I’ve done here at KCRA has put me in the position to go on to bigger and better things,” Williams told his staff on Monday. “I’m excited about what the future holds.”

No word yet on who will replace Williams at KCRA, or on what his future plans are. He has not responded to an email from TVSpy seeking comment.

Here’s a video of Williams discussing the impact of social media on news-gathering…
