Will Robinson-Smith is a reporter for WAAY.

Title: Reporter

My journalism career began while in high school in Sacramento, CA. At the time, I loved all types of photography and decided to join my school's newspaper. I started off my freshman year as a staff writer, eventually becoming our photo editor and later, co-editor-in-chief.

I began to make the transition into television news in college. Northwestern University didn't offer a degree in photography, so I decided to try my hand at broadcasting. Throughout my four years, I reported and anchored for the Northwestern News Network, while pursuing a degree in journalism.

During my time at school, I also spent a quarter working for WLNS, the CBS affiliate in Lansing, MI and a summer interning with a local magazine in Buffalo, NY. After graduation, I began reporting for FOX10 News in Mobile, AL before coming to WAAY 31. I enjoy working at WAAY 31 because I get to work alongside wonderful colleagues all of whom are excited about delivering important stories that impact the community.
