About Diana Williams
I am a professional storyteller. I most recently completed a role as the first and primary manager of marketing and communications for BackStory, an American history podcast that wrapped production in 2020. As the founder and principal of Williams Multimedia, a media production and marketing company specializing in audio storytelling, I and my team strive to tell and amplify stories that represent marginalized voices.
I have an MA in journalism and public affairs from American University. I also hold a bachelor's in visual communications and an associate's in paralegal studies. My mother-in-law hopes that I'll eventually round out my collection with a PhD. We'll see.
My husband Clarence and I have lived in the Shenandoah Valley since 1997 and the City of Waynesboro since 2011. We raised our sons here and decided to stay after they graduated and left the nest.
Our oldest son, C.C., is an aspiring actor with bases in Brooklyn, NY and Richmond, VA. Our youngest son, Christopher, is an up and coming chef with plans to open a food truck serving central Virginia in Spring 2021.
We have a dog, Luna, and a cat, Sullivan.
Services & Projects
Launching a podcast or looking to take one to the next level?
More than one million podcasts are currently available in Apple podcasts. That's a lot of noise to rise above, especially for a new podcast or for an established podcast looking to grow their audience. I have experience in gaining new listeners and keeping your entire audience fully engaged. StoryCorps' One Small Step project, VPM and Tradeoffs podcast are current/past clients.

"Whatever Happened to Brittiany Lane?" is Williams Multimedia's first podcast! It tells the story of the Romance Counsel, four family members who formed a club and advice column for young people that was published in an imprint of popular teen magazine "Tiger Beat" back in the mid-80s. It's about family, 80s nostalgia and a genre of media that is sometimes toxic.
