Description

For more than three decades, Phil Williams has set the standard in Nashville for serious investigative journalism on the state and local level, earning him honors and praise from his peers and, now, the local community.

At WTVF-5, the CBS affiliate owned by The E.W. Scripps Co., Williams attracted outsized attention for his coverage of a mayoral race in Franklin, Tenn., that drew national attention — and death threats. His on-air efforts exposing falsehoods and a candidate's link to white supremacists, which led to the defeat of the controversial aspiring Mayor, also resulted in a full-page ad in the city’s newspaper that directly saluted Williams for displaying “utmost professionalism, even when they encountered threats to their personal safety.”

To discuss how Williams uncovered the sordid tales surrounding Gabrielle Hanson, which gained national attention and a lengthy story on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Williams joins RBR+TVBR Editor-in-Chief Adam R Jacobson on the latest InFOCUS Podcast, presented by dot.FM.
