The Associated Press Television-Radio Association is giving its Stan Chambers Award for Extraordinary Achievement to veteran Bay Area television reporter Rita Williams. Williams retired last year from KTVU in Oakland after 35 years with the station.

Williams opened KTVU's San Francisco bureau, covered four national political conventions, the assassinations of San Francisco Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk and the shooting of unarmed BART passenger Oscar Grant. She has won numerous awards during her career, including APTRA's Chris Harris Reporter of the Year award.

Previous winners of the Stan Chambers Award for Extraordinary Achievement include Hal Eisner of KTTV, Los Angeles, and Hank Plante of KPIX, San Francisco. The award is named for longtime KTLA Los Angeles TV reporter Stan Chambers.
