SUNY Purchase Journalism Professor Mary Alice Williams Back on the WeekendToday Show for a 25-Year Celebration

That’s Mary Alice Williams in blue behind Al Roker looking as comfortable in front of the camera as ever. She was back on the Today show this weekend to celebrate 25 years of weekend broadcasts.

Williams, who is assistant professor of journalism at SUNY Purchase, co-anchored with Garrick Utley from 1989 to 1993.

Here’s the Purchase College write-up on it which gives the highlights of her stellar career in TV, including her stint as one of the founding forces behind CNN.

MAW, as she is fondly called by her faculty colleagues in the journalism program, is by far my favorite broadcast journalism professor.

You rock, MAW!
