Jhas Williams Announces Exit from WIVB
Jhas Williams grew up in South Jersey/Philadelphia area and graduated from Rowan College. Before turning to television broadcasting, Williams was a morning show radio personality for Delmarva Broadcasting in New Jersey while simultaneously contributing to publications and doing voiceover work.
Williams transitioned to TV at the Buffalo, New York station, WIVB. She started as a traffic reporter on News 4 before being promoted to an anchor.
She anchored the morning timeslot on Wake Up for two years, during which Buffalo came to know and love her. So, naturally, viewers were saddened by her announcement that she is leaving WIVB-TV.
Next Friday, 7.29, I’ll be in a flurry of emotions for two reasons. 1. Because Beyonce is releasing her new album that day, and 2. Because it’ll be my last day at News 4.
