Bill's work has been consistently recognized because of the quality of his journalism and the difficulty of the subject matter that he chooses. His nationally honored stories have included the following: a half-hour primetime report on preventing the deaths of children placed under county care in the Cleveland area; a four-year investigation on the priest sex-abuse scandal in northeast Ohio; and an expose which revealed that the cleric who established the first American outpost for what became al-Qaida had quietly relocated to Cleveland.
Bill attended the University of Tulsa, where he received a bachelor's degree in telecommunications. He is also a graduate of the University of Tulsa College of Law, and has been a member of the Oklahoma Bar Association.
