Former WFLA journalist Lance Williams, who made his mark as a master storyteller, is once again crafting tales of local interest.
Williams left News Channel 8 nearly 8 years ago after battling leukemia and beating it. He decided to leave journalism behind for a new career in real estate.
"Here's this 47 year old man with a broken body who's going to start from scratch and make a living for his family. They ain't teaching that at Harvard business school," Williams joked from his South Tampa office at Preston & Farley.
But that leap of faith into an entirely different industry turned out to lure Williams back to the craft he loves. He's telling stories again. This time about the properties he lists, the architecture he finds most interesting and the people who inspire his sensibilities.
Williams posts his well told tales on his blog At Home With Lance.
"It takes all the things I loved about writing, all the things I loved about the power of video, all the things I love about residential real estate and architecture, and I get to put them all together and make a living at it," Williams said.
When you ask Williams about his health, his family, his future he'll tell you he feels blessed beyond measure. When you ask him about creating stories reminiscent of those he told for so many years as a journalist he'll tell you he's humbled people still care to watch and listen.
"For any of us who loves to be creative when somebody else appreciates what you've done that's just icing on the cake," he said.
