David Williams joined WRIC-TV in January 2021. He came to Richmond from KAMR-TV in Amarillo, TX, where he was the Weekend Meteorologist/Multi-Media Journalist. There, he storm-chased tornadoes and forecasted winter storms as well as extreme dry heat conditions across the high plains.
Raised in Queens, NY, David has always been fascinated by winter weather and thunderstorms. In 2009, he moved to Charlotte, NC, where the weather is mild year-round, except for the sweltering summers. He attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and received a B.S. in Meteorology with a minor in Theatre.
David is very excited to be back on the east coast, especially in Virginia, as he spent a portion of his life in Arlington, VA.
