Jack Williams is leaving WBZ’s 11 p.m. newscast. According to the station, the longtime channel 4 anchorman will continue to anchor the 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. broadcasts on WBZ and myTV38, respectively. He is stepping aside on nightside anchoring to spend more time with his wife.
The 37 year veteran was adamant that he is not being forced out by oft-overbearing corporate overlords at the network. He says, “This was my idea,” adding, “They told me I can work as long as I want. They’ve been very gracious to me.”
To the surprise of nearly nobody, Jonathan Elias will take over the helm for Williams. This marks the first time in nearly a decade where Williams has not been seen at 11.
