WTTG Anchor Talks About Newsroom Divas

By Kevin Eck 

WTTG anchor and reporter Will Thomas got a quick write up in The Washington Post.

The co-anchor of the 11:00 p.m. news has worked at the Washington, D.C. FOX owned station since 1997. He talked about the hardest stories he has to do:

The hardest story for me always is having to interview a parent, a husband, a wife who lost a loved one. It’s never easy. You would think maybe it gets easier over time, but for me it doesn’t. I’m very close to my family, so I feel their emotion. They’re not stories I hate. I’m usually very honored to do them.


And while he refused to say if anyone at WTTG was a diva, he did say who he respects:

I can’t say there’s a diva. In broadcast journalism today, there’s not a lot of room for divas. Sometimes you’ll get people who are more willing to stand up for what they believe, and generally those are the people I respect. I have to tell you, the few times that someone might get frustrated in the newsroom, it’s not because their hair and makeup isn’t right. It may be over a script or a technical error, something quite often out of human control.
