Rick Williams
Rick Williams has kept 6abc viewers informed for more than 25 years as an anchor and reporter. He currently co-anchors Action News at 5 p.m., and assumed his role as anchor of Action News at 11 p.m. in January 2022.

Rick also reports for Action News' weekly "Crimefighters" series. Before that, Rick co-anchored Action News Mornings, helping to create a dominant early morning program.

Rick arrived in Philadelphia in 1988 from WRAL-TV in Raleigh, North Carolina. Before that, he worked in Huntington, West Virginia and Washington D.C., where he also worked in radio and attended college at Howard University.

Although Rick was born in New York, he considers himself a true Philadelphian and has spent much of his time helping to uplift the community and inspire young people in their academic endeavors. He currently sits on the board of Philadelphia Futures, a non-profit organization that mentors college-bound Philadelphia students. He is also a board member of the Moorestown Theater Company, and has taken the stage in a few musical productions with his family and friends.
