Robert Williams has been a sports editor for Forum Communications in Perham and Detroit Lakes since 2011.

Prior to covering sports, Williams was an entertainment writer in Florida and Texas while amassing an interesting collection of job experience in a wide variety of fields from technology to the arts between the three states.

Williams is a Detroit Lakes high school and St. Cloud State University alum. He grew up reading the Tribune's Ralph Anderson, who covered sports in the area for half a century, and takes the responsibility of continuing that effort seriously.
