Philadelphia TV news anchor Beverly Williams

Beverly Williams is a legend in Philadelphia broadcast journalism.

She anchored the news from KYW-TV, then an NBC affiliate, from 1975 to 1981, and again from 1989 to 2003. (KYW-TV became a CBS affiliate in 1995.) She was the first black woman to anchor a newscast in the Philadelphia market.

She also anchored the news at WTNH-TV in New Haven, Connecticut, and hosted the KYW-TV talk show "Eye On Philadelphia" from 2003 to 2006.

Beverly Williams left KYW-TV in September 2006, but she said she hoped to remain active in television news.
