Bill Walsh, Anchor
Bill joined the team in April of 2013, and is a weekend anchor and investigative reporter with CBS 58.
His broadcast career started in Rochester, MN as a weekend sports anchor for the NBC affiliate there. As a multimedia journalist, Bill photographed, edited, and wrote all his sports stories. While Bill loves to talk sports, his true passion lies in news.
He worked as a weekend news anchor for WKBT-TV in LaCrosse, and a reporter/fill-in anchor for WFRV-TV in Green Bay. As part of WFRV's coverage of the Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey trials, you'll see Bill in the controversial Netflix documentary "Making a Murderer" in Episodes 4 and 9.
During his time in Michigan as a reporter and 10pm anchor, one of Bill's stories made national news. A man who won $2-million in the lottery was still using food stamps.
In 2013, Bill jumped at the chance to get back to Wisconsin and work for WDJT. He had been to Milwaukee as a tourist dozens of times, and says he fell in love with Milwaukee at the Locust Street Fest-- with its collection of local music, art, and food. In fact Bill loved it so much he now lives in the Riverwest neighborhood.
Bill is from a split household- Mom is a Vikings fan, Dad is a Packers fan. Not one to disappoint either parent, Bill throws up his hands and just calls himself an avid Bucks and Brewers fan.
He is honored to help promote the United Performing Arts Fund in Southeast Wisconsin. As part of the partnership between CBS 58 and UPAF, Bill emceed the opening and closing ceremonies for the 2015 fundraising campaign, and the UPAF Ride for the Arts, and is thrilled to continue to advance such a worthy cause.
In his spare time, you might see Bill playing sand volleyball, going off-road in his Jeep, watching Steven Colbert, or catching local live music. Bill will also tell you his fantasy football and fantasy baseball teams are perennially dominant (editor: don't believe him).
