Originally from California, Will moved to D.C. thinking it would be a stopover in his career, but he fell in love with the region and the people. He's been awarded with two Emmys for in-depth and live reporting, but it's your loyalty that matters to Will the most. After all, we've been through a lot together over these years and he's been honored to cover many of the biggest stories of the past 18 years, like the impeachment of President Clinton, the saga of Elian Gonzalez who attempted to flee Communist Cuba with his mother, the attacks of September 11th, the disappearance of Chandra Levy, the D.C. area sniper shootings and eventual execution of John Allen Muhammad.
No matter what the story, the journalists at FOX 5 News want you to see and feel the story through the lens of those affected. Will is fortunate to work with an amazing group of people and his colleagues will tell you he loves to laugh and joke around in the newsroom and in the studio during commercial breaks.
