At first, William thought the TV thing was not his cup of tea. Later, he followed his wife’s advice and gave it a try.

However, that didn’t disappoint Will and his fans. CBS also gave him a chance to learn and move on. But, the phase of his retirement and joining a new career wasn’t easy for the analyst.

“It was tough to start,” he said. No matter how hard it was, he kept on trying, and as time passed, it turned out to be a therapy for him.
