Jack Williams
Senator Edward M. Kennedy

Jack Williams is the evening news anchor of the CBS affiliate in Boston, Massachusetts. Williams has been a respected journalist since 1968, and has been recognized for his continued commitment to the community through the numerous charitable organizations he actively promotes. In 1981, Williams created a weekly news series called “Wednesday’s Child” which has become the model for television stations throughout the nation. Each week, “Wednesday’s Child” features a special needs child who is in search of a permanent home. Since its creation, the segment has helped more than 525 special needs children find loving homes. In addition, Williams is responsible for raising more than $5,000,000 for special needs adoption. In April 2000, Williams created the Jack Williams Endowment for Wednesday’s Child, a 501(C)(3) charity to ensure continued financial support for special needs adoption.
