Winford Williams happy 'On Stage'
published: Friday | March 16, 2007


Winford Williams of CVM-TV. - Contributed

Andre Jebbinson, Staff Reporter

One of CVM-TV's original members, Winford Williams, has become the face of television entertainment. It took a while to convince Williams to jump ship from Power 106 to CVM-TV, but he did.

In 1998, after covering and broadcasting programmes and features from some of the biggest events in Jamaica, Winford created 'On Stage'. He is also the creator of 'The Party'.

How did you get started in the media?

I started out as a sales representative at Power 106 before it came on air in 1991. A year later I was the creator and producer of a weekly show called 'Auto Talk', and helping to produce another, called 'Entertainment Line', with Michael Whyte and Howard McGowan, while still carrying my sales portfolio. CVM got wind of my performance at Power 106 and began to court me for a job in sales. It took them a year to convince me to take up the offer. I joined in 1993 and within months began to develop CVM Entertainment.

What is your dream job?

My dream job is the one I am doing now - creating, producing, directing and presenting television programming.

What is your best moment working in the media?

Landing in South Africa on assignment.

Have you been faced with negative remarks?

Yes, but they have only strengthened my resolve to achieve my goals.

If not television, what would you be doing?

Something in music ... perhaps in management and production.

What is your favourite show (local or international)?

'Law and Order'.

Who are your favourite media personalities (local or international)?

The list is too long, including local radio personalities, to start calling names.

What turns you off about people?

Dishonesty.

If you could meet any one person, who would he/she be?

Nelson Mandela.

What is one thing that people would be surprised to know about you?

That I was a sound system DJ and crazy dancer in my teens.
