When you mention local sports and television in the same breath, usually the name of Mitchell Williams comes up. Mitchell has been an employee of WDAM-TV since 1984. A native of Hattiesburg, Mitchell attended North Forrest High school and Southern Miss, where he was inshrined in the school's athletic hall of fame in 2001.
Under his leadership, WDAM has been cited by the Associated Press and the Mississippi Association of Broadcasters for broadcasting excellence on at least 30 occasions. The winner of Mississippi's best sportscast in 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2009, Mitchell stays busy visiting area high schools, speaking at youth events, and serving as the founder for The Quarterback Club, a non-profit effort designed to encourage and strengthen leaders at area high school football programs.
Happily married and the father of four boys, Mitchell embraces the opportunity to work at WDAM and believes sports should be the part of the newscast where a viewer can smile at least one time. For speaking engagements and tips on some great stories... E-mail Mitch
