Bill Williams has been on staff at KMAN since 2006. He is usually the studio engineer on Sunday mornings, bringing the classic sounds of “The Bill Miller Show” and services from the First United Methodist Church to all of our listeners. Bill has been at Manhattan Broadcasting since 1998, and is also on staff at sister stations B1047 and K-Rock. He also integrates his love for K-State sports into his position on the road crew for “Powercat Gameday”. In fact, he still gets very animated talking about watching the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium…from the Press Box. While not a native Kansan, Bill has lived in Manhattan since his Army service ended in 1997. He now considers himself home here in the Flint Hills.
When not on air, you can usually find Bill at any of the K-State sports venues. He also enjoys golf (actually, we think he enjoys the practice; he definitely needs all he can get), reading, and travel. While on the ground here in MHK, he enjoys the great variety of restaurants here in the “Little Apple”, including Hibachi Hut, Olive Garden, Little Apple Brewery, and Cox Brothers. He’s also a fan of great comedies (he has seen “Caddyshack” well over 100 times) and good biographies (“8 Seconds”, “La Bamba”, and does “The Right Stuff” count?). On his iPod, or in his CD player at any given time can be found a mix of classic and modern country, 80′s rock, and even a few Elvis tunes. When he’s in front of the telly, it’s usually to watch one of the reality shows (with the help of a DVR) that he’s addicted to at that particular time…classics like “Amazing Race” and “Hell’s Kitchen”, or newer shows “Hard Core Pawn” and “Man vs Food”. His birthday is in August, and he wears size 12 shoes. We’d tell you his favorite color, but you’ve probably already guessed that one.
