Morning Anchor Natasha Williams Out at WHIO

Natasha Williams has parted ways with WHIO after 19 years at the Dayton CBS-affiliate.

Williams has not appeared at the WHIO morning anchor desk since late last month. The station has been responding to comments on its Facebook page with a statement that reads, “Natasha no longer works at WHIO-TV. We wish her well in her future endeavors!”

Williams co-anchored the morning newscast with John Paul. Before joining WHIO in 1993 as a reporter, she worked at WBBJ in Jackson, WTVO in Rockford and WKEF in Dayton.

WHIO is the Latest Station to Launch 4:30 a.m. News

Dayton’s WHIO announced today that it will expand its morning news to the 4:30 a.m. timeslot beginning next Monday.

The station will move Gabrielle Enright, who has been with the CBS affiliate since 1997, from weekend anchor to helm the new broadcast. Enright will be joined by meteorologist Rich Wirdzek and will contribute to the regular 5 a.m. program, which is anchored by John Paul and Natasha Williams, as the morning goes on.

“We’ve had a great response to our expanded newscasts at 4:30 a.m. when we’ve had major breaking news and severe weather,” said news director Dave Bannallack. “Now Gabrielle and Rich will be there for our viewers every day.”

The expanded news will make the cumulative time for WHIO’s morning show three and a half hours, including the 7 a.m. hour, which is broadcast on the station’s digital channel.
