Kayla Marie Williams believes in leaps of faith. The CP24 reporter and Breakfast Weekend host is fearless when it comes to pursuing her goals. Combining her love of sports, her gift for storytelling, and impressive worldwide experience, the inspiring Scarborough native is a unique new presence on Toronto’s media scene. From Broadcast Journalism at Grambling State University in Louisiana, to a Master’s degree in Sports Administration from Georgia State, Kayla launched into victories as a professional volleyball player abroad, including stints in Russia, Latvia, and the Bahamas.
Although of Filipina and Jamaican heritage, Kayla had never been to the Philippines before, until an opportunity arose in 2015 to play in the popular Philippine Super Liga. Kayla embraced the adventure and helped her team win its first-ever PSL Grand Prix title.
Previously an arts feature reporter in Atlanta, and a sports reporter for the Hamilton Tiger Cats football club, Kayla now has a loyal following at the only 24-hour breaking news station in Canada, where she can be seen covering everything from TIFF to #WeTheNorth.
