300853_2200279577989_1802691944_nCongratulations to FOX 10’s Linda Williams, who will be among the newest members of the Arizona Broadcasters Association Hall of Fame when she is inducted at the ABA’s 25th Annual Hall of Fame luncheon on Oct. 16.  She joined the Fox 10 News team in 1981 and co-anchors the weekend editions of FOX 10 News broadcasts -- Saturdays and Sundays from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. to 10:30.p.m. I’ve had the privilege of working with her on telethons and other various projects over the years.  She’s a Hall of Famer!

Linda, time to share:

My family moved from Boston to Phoenix in 1973, and I attended Camelback High School in Phoenix. I began my broadcast career in 1979 at Channel 8, the PBS station at ASU. I worked in master control and pushed buttons to get Sesame Street on the air on Saturday and Sundays!

After graduating as a Sun Devil, I joined channel 10 News, where I have been ever since. I started as a tape editor, became a general assignment reporter and am now a news anchor.

Both of my children back-stabbed me with Sparky’s pitch fork, and now attend U of A! I pay tuition to my arch rival---- AARRGGHHHH!

Seriously, when I’m not working, I enjoy writing, trying to play the guitar, watching home improvement shows, and of course watching news! I also love visiting Valley schools and talking about journalism as a career.  It has been a glorious ride for me. I love my job, and I feel blessed to be a part of this community!

You can follow Linda on Twitter or on Facebook.

    I am the event planner for my active adult group at church. Once a month we have a catered breakfast and a guest speaker. We are working on our 2019 calendar and wondered if you would be available for our April 17 breakfast meeting. Our church is located near 107 Avenue and Pinnacle Peak Road. Our catered breakfast begins at 8:30. Most everyone in our group has watched you and tv and enjoyed it very much.

    Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
