So proud to see my media protégé, FOX News contributor Eboni K. Williams featured for her burgeoning media career. This month she was one of the featured “Women of Distinction” in Elysian Magazine for her work in television and radio.
You can see her routinely as a guest of Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs and of course, The Mo’Kelly Show where she began.
“You’re a lawyer, right?” I said I am. I was referred to KFI AM 640’s Mo Kelly, who was looking for a lawyer to come on and break down the Casey Anthony headline case. I had been following all big cases and was happy to do it. Just off-the-cuff, you know, just a favor really. I tell you, I fell in love with that microphone and the ability to break down complicated legal nuance in a way that mainstream viewers could understand. It was a conservative-leaning radio station, but I didn’t know that. So, I got a very quick education.
After doing that for a while, the program director, who was this fantastic woman, Robin Bertolucci, approached me and changed my career trajectory. She said, “Eboni, you know, I’ve been hearing you on Mo’s show. You sound great. Would you be interested in doing a three-hour hosting stint?” I had not thought about that. That was never the plan. I was happy with my little segment. But I knew enough to know, and my faith tells me you never turn down an opportunity because you don’t know where God is trying to take you. So, I said absolutely.
