Sherry Williams announces departure from KHOU 11

KHOU 11 reporter/anchor Sherry Williams is leaving the TEGNA station this Friday.

The Houston CBS affiliate started a campaign to help as many Hurricane Harvey victims get their homes livable as possible. Williams is spending her last week covering these forgotten folks.

She tells me she did not make this decision to leave lightly.

"Channel 11 is a unique place where, like so many before me, I have formed many strong bonds with my peers," Williams told "I will miss everyone A LOT! And I will miss 'being with' all the great people who tune in to watch!"

Williams grew up in Houston's Third Ward and attended Turner Elementary, Lanier Junior High and Lamar High School. She earned her journalism degree at Texas A&M - even started working at Bryan radio station, WTAW, while still in school as an Aggie.

Williams went on to work in Dallas, Detroit and as a correspondent for Black Entertainment Television.

She returned to Houston to work as a reporter for FOX 26 KRIV.

Later, she anchored CW 39's KIAH's (then KHWB) return to local news with Alan Hemberger.

She then joined KHOU.

"I am very grateful for the 9 years I have spent being part of the KHOU family," Williams told me.

As someone who runs marathon, Williams founded the KHOU 11 Bike Team in 2010 which is made up of co-workers and friends who shared a desire to complete the 180-mile MS 150.

What I did not realize until reading her bio is that Williams is married to her college sweetheart, Rube Williams, Jr., Ph.D. Perfect for Houston, Dr. Williams is a real life rocket scientist!

SAY GOODBYE: Leave Sherry Williams a message

Stay tuned to my blog, I will be staying on top of William's career to make sure I let you know where she ends up next!
