New Local Art Show on WACH Fox

WACH Fox News is thrilled for its newest program, Arts Watch with William. Arts Watch, is a segment of the WACH Fox News Good Day, and is hosted by William Starrett, the artistic and executive director of the Columbia City Ballet. The show airing every Thursday morning at 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. will inform audiences about the latest visual and performance arts events taking place in Columbia and surrounding areas. Each show will be shot on location of the venue that the event will take place. Starrett will give viewers all the information they need to attend these events, from show times and dates to where to buy tickets- even what to wear and where to park. He will also interview the directors, performers and creators, giving a unique perspective that is sure to educate and stimulate the viewers. WACH Fox and Starrett hope this segment will help raise awareness of and support for all arts disciplines in Columbia. Tune in every Thursday at 7 a.m. or 8 a.m. for all of Columbia’s artistic happenings.

Starrett has been a leader in the Columbia arts scene for over 20 years, first as a performer and principle dancer, guesting in Columbia from New York City, and later as a director, choreographer and teacher throughout the state. For more information, please visit
