About Cynthia Williams


Cynthia Williams is a veteran reporter, known for exclusive interviews and compelling stories about people.

In her time here, she's done it all, from anchoring and reporting to producing and reporting series pieces for Sweeps. Cynthia is also the accomplished author of a series of four children's books. The books focus on a fictional inner-city neighborhood. The main character is Enid a young, adventurous girl who triumphs by using her leadership skills to improve her troubled community.

The native of Mobile, Ala., is ecstatic to call Nashville home. Cynthia got her start in television news by answering an ad for a summer part-time job opportunity at WKRG television in Mobile. "It was the summer I graduated from high school, and I really needed the money to help with college expenses in the fall," she said.

The job opened the door for many other part-time opportunities around the station. By the time she'd graduated from the University of South Alabama with a degree in English/Writing, Cynthia had worked as a receptionist, public affairs assistant, FM radio researcher, news photographer and finally a full-time general assignment reporter at the station. "Man plans and God laughs. I had no aspirations for working in television news," she said.
