On Tuesday, Feb. 8 at 2 p.m. ET via Zoom, FMC Fast Chat features broadcast legend Mary Alice Williams for a talk about her life in news. As always, your questions help drive the conversation.
Mary Alice Williams is a highly acclaimed pioneering broadcast journalist with a wealth of experience in the field. Her investigative work on such topics as foreign policy, ethics, technology and health have made her a respected authority and recognized voice for public information. Since 2020, she has hosted national conferences, moderated panels and conducted interviews with authors covering national issues from the environmental threat to the partisan divide and its impact on voter turn-out, as well as the future of the Supreme Court and the fate of Roe Vs Wade.
Recently, she stepped down as anchor of NJTV News, a Public Media station devoted to telling stories of import to New Jersey residents, capping a news career that began local — at NBC New York and WPIX — to becoming one of the highest-ranking female executives in American television. A primary architect behind the design of the first worldwide television network, Williams oversaw the construction of CNN’s New York bureau and served as principal anchor and Vice President in charge of the New York bureau. From there, she went on to NBC News, where she was an anchor of the news team that won a national Emmy Award for its coverage of the fall of communism.
These are just a few of the highlights of the extraordinary life of Mary Alice Williams. Find out more and ask your questions during the 30-minute chat.
