Heather Williams joined News 5 WCYB in August of 2015 as the weekend sports anchor and a multimedia journalist. Heather is originally from Kansas City, Missouri, and returns to Tennessee after spending the past five years working for a station in Wichita, Kansas. She has also worked for stations in Chattanooga and Nashville, as well as Greenville, Mississippi, and Springfield, Missouri.
Heather is excited to back in East Tennessee and back in racing country. She has been covering racing for more ten years and has been honored many times for her work covering motorsports, including with the prestigious Catlin Motorsports Journalism Award and an Emmy nomination. She is also a huge football and baseball fan (and finally her Kansas City Royals are giving her something to cheer for!).
