WCSH Portland (Maine) anchor Cindy Williams has announced her retirement. Williams has spent 32 years at the station and steps down in mid December.
Williams co-anchors the noon, 5:30 and 6 p.m. newscasts for WCSH, a Tegna-owned NBC affiliate.
In an essay on the WCSH website, Williams shared that she’d undergone two spinal surgeries, a factor in her decision.
“I have been so honored and blessed to have had the best job in the world for 32 years … crazy to actually write that down. Thirty-two years, but time flies when you‘re having fun,” she said. “I work with some of the most amazing, passionate, driven, caring people I have ever known. So lucky. And for 32 years, I've had the privilege of your trust which has meant more than I can possibly say.”
WCSH goes with News Center Maine branding. Williams previously worked at stations in Mississippi and New Hampshire. She is married to former WCSH anchor Lee Nelson.
