It is not every day that you get to meet your namesake, who is just as famous as you are. There are no two Beyonces, no two Rihanas, and certainly no two Tom Cruises. However, such is the plight Allison Williams finds herself in. The sportscaster’s name matches the actress Allison Williams and given how both are successful in their respective fields, people often end up confusing one from the other. And given how the actress Allison is the daughter of famous news Anchor Brian Williams, many simply assume that Brian is the father of the reporter Allison. And while the confusion might be enough to give anyone a headache, Allison sees the humor in all of that. She has even gone onto the record to say that she and actress Allison should have a wrestling match to see who gets to be called the real Allison. But for this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of reporter Allison Williams.
Allison Williams was born on the 18th of January, 1984, in Michigan. Born and raised in Michigan, not much is known about Williams and the star has kept details of her early life under wraps. As far as her family goes, she has a father, Dale, who worked as a police officer in Ann Harbor. Other than that, Williams has never talked about her mother or siblings, and their whereabouts have never been revealed to the media. Following her time in high school, Williams decided to enroll at the University of Miami. She graduated from the University with a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism in 2006.
Unlike most sportscasters who take things from the ground up, Williams was recognized for her talent and was hired by the CSS network as the sideline reporter for her talent and hard work. During her time at CSS, Williams was also responsible for hosting the TV series, Ultimate Fan Experience. While still at CSS, Williams took on the role of sideline reporter for the FOX Sports Florida Channel. She took up the job in 2008 and two years later, in 2010, left CSS. During her time at FOX, Williams was assigned to pregame shows in Florida and was also the go-to person for news on the Florida Marlins baseball team, Florida Panthers Hockey team. Around the same time, Williams began hosting Miccosukee Sports Rap. The show led to her hiring by the Miami Dolphins and Williams became an integral part of the pregame show, Dolphins Game Day Live. While Williams has been tailoring her career to fit the TV, she also worked as a radio show host for Sports Radio 560 WQAM.
But for all her small roles, Williams was looking for that next big step that came in the form of ESPN. In March of 2011, Williams moved to ESPN and began serving as a sideline reporter for college basketball games as well as Saturday college football games. Known for her play-by-play reporting of games, Williams has been with ESPN for 9-long years and looks prime for 9 more.
The sportscaster Allison Williams has an estimated net worth of USD 1 million. She has accumulated her wealth mainly through her profession as a report.
Much like her early life, Alison hasn’t revealed much about her relationships and prefers to keep things under wraps. As of now, it is not known if Alison is married to someone or is in a relationship.
