CBS Atlanta anchor JaQuitta Williams announced today she is leaving the station after almost three years there.
She had been anchoring the 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. newscasts. (Katie Brace was anchoring 6 p.m. tonight.)
Here's the message Williams posted on her Instagram today:
The classic phrase "They're moving in a different direction" makes it clear this was not a voluntary move on Williams' part.
General manager Trey Fabacher confirmed her departure, declined to comment further.
"We are interviewing for many on-air positions right now and will be filling most of them in the next month or two," he wrote in an email.
In a Facebook message, Williams noted:
Its hard for me to give anything else the kind of energy going through cancer gave me. I'm healthy. Strong. Surviving. I celebrate 6 years next month. I'm grateful, thankful, and humbled by God's grace. I mean that so sincerely. Now, it's time to move forward. God leads. I follow. I have no idea what's next, but whatever it is, I'm excited.
Prior to her stint at CBS Atlanta, Williams spent four years at Channel 2 Action News. She has also dabbled in acting, appearing on "Tyler Perry's House of Payne" and "Meet the Browns." She also was part of a Robert Townsend play televised on what was then the Gospel Music Channel in 2009.
