#MeetTheHost: Kayla Marie Williams
Our host this year not only rules the volleyball court but shines in front of the camera as well, bringing you the latest news and headlines.
Kayla Williams joined Toronto’s breaking news team in November 2016, and has been keeping Torontonians up-to-date with the latest headlines through her role as a reporter on weekdays, and as co-host and weekend weather specialist for CP24 BREAKFAST WEEKEND.
Graduating from Grambling State University in Louisiana and earning her Master’s in Sports Administration from Georgia State University, Williams has a wide range of experience working in Canada and the U.S. as a reporter, host, and producer. Kayla has worked for KTVE10, Sprite and Global Basketball, and Ticats TV with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats Football Club before joining the CP24 team.
Kayla is proud of her culture – a mix of Filipino and Jamaican heritage. An active member of the sports community, she was once an assistant volleyball coach at a Division 3 college in Atlanta. She recently spent a year abroad playing professional volleyball in the Philippines and was a member of the Jamaican national indoor volleyball team.
Williams is excited to be back in her hometown Toronto and part of the CP24 team, and looks forward to getting out in the city and interacting with fellow Torontonians on a regular basis.
