Carol Williams is retiring after three decades on the anchor desk at WCPO. We are honoring her this week with videos and special tributes on air and online. You can see those throughout our 6 p.m. newscasts. Carol's farewell newscast is 6 p.m. Friday.
I'm sure Carol had to weather that gender storm and she did it seamlessly because she had the personality and the smarts.
Some might call her a pioneer. I prefer to call her the right person in the right place at the right time - well read, well informed. When she walked into the studio, Carol could talk politics, world events, local sports with just the right tone. She never embarrassed herself or one of us.
You see, really good anchors have to be unselfish, and each night when Carol sat in that anchor chair, she was great. But what she did exceedingly well was make the rest of us look good.
