Title: Anchor

Bill Young is the co-anchor for WAAY-31 News Mornings and WAAY-31 News Midday. He joined WAAY-31 in November 2015 after spending three years as the morning anchor for FOX25 TV in Oklahoma City, the same station where he interned and first worked as a part-time reporter while in college at Oklahoma City University.

Bill also worked as a morning anchor in both Waco, Texas, and El Paso before he moved back to Oklahoma City. He also worked as a reporter for several small newspapers during his freshman year in college.

Bill is a self described "car nut" and has been since birth. He's also the owner of a rescue dog named Pumpkin (she came with the name and Bill said it simply fit her "country girl" personality)
