Bridgett Williams takes over today as WKMG‘s morning anchor, shifting into the time slot Laura Diaz left last week. Diaz announced she was leaving the station because she is “too down to earth to be an on-air personality.”
Before her new assignment, Williams was anchoring the weekend morning shows and the 11 p.m. Sunday news. She has been at WMKG since 2010, when she moved to Orlando from Augusta’s WAGT. She is the sister of Weather Channel meteorologist Scott Williams.
She will be joined in the mornings by anchor Matt Austin, who moves to WKMG from KOKH in Oklahoma City.
