WTMJ Adds Longtime Radio Host Andrea Williams as Special Reporter

By Kevin Eck 

Milwaukee NBC affiliate WTMJ has added Andrea Williams as a specialty reporter.

Williams has worked as a morning drive radio personality in the city for 25 years. She’s also worked as news and public affairs director for the Milwaukee Radio Group.

The station said William’s will report on “those people in our community who don’t always make the news but have important stories to tell.”


“I’ve had some amazing opportunities working in Milwaukee and joining the TMJ4 News team is definitely at the top of the list!” said Williams. “I plan to continue connecting with the good people of this city—and look forward to telling their stories that shine a light on what truly makes Milwaukee great.”

Williams started working in Milwaukee radio in 1996. In addition to her radio career, she was the local NBA team’s original in-arena host for ten seasons—and hosted and executive produced Our Issues Milwaukee and Connect MKE on the city’s CW and MyTV outlets.

“We feel very fortunate to bring someone with Andrea’s knowledge of the community and broadcasting experience to our newsroom,” said TMJ4 news director Tim Vetscher. “She adds a different perspective and approach to storytelling and is very plugged in to what makes this city tick and where there is room for improvement.”

Williams joins the station in May and will begin on air in early June.
