Jamal Williams joined WDEF-TV in Chattanooga, TN in January 2015 as the weekend sports anchor/reporter after working as a multi-media journalist at the Fox affiliate KYLE/KWKT in Bryan/College Station, Texas.
Before joining KYLE/KWKT, Jamal interned at WXIA, 11 Alive in Atlanta and WVUE, Fox 8 in New Orleans, LA.
Jamal is a graduate of Clark Atlanta University where he played football and co-hosted the two time award winning sports talk show From the PressBox on CAU-TV.
While Jamal’s love for sports began as a Saints fan in his hometown of New Orleans, LA, it was at Sprayberry High School in Marietta, GA where his interest in broadcast journalism began when he produced and anchored the school news show.
During his spare time, Jamal likes to workout and stay informed about what’s going on in the world of sports.
He is excited about being in Chattanooga and being a part of the WDEF team.
