Williams's journalism career began in 1984 with a cadetship at The Courier-Mail newspaper in Brisbane.[1] From there he moved to The Australian offices in Melbourne, where he wrote sports features and columns before joining the Seven Network in 1988.[1] Apart from his role as a sports presenter on Seven News, Williams occasionally hosted Sportsworld. He was a presenter for the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, where he called Matt Ryan's equestrian double gold for Australia.[1]

In 1996, he signed as the face of Fox Sports, anchoring NRL On Fox, Dally M Awards, Super 12 Rugby, Wimbledon, Winter Olympics, the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix and Fox Sports News.[1] In 2001, amid scandal, Fox Sports declined to renew his contract.[2]

After this, Williams was a breakfast announcer at 2HD in Newcastle. Williams also owns a Newcastle modelling and talent agency, Models and Actors.[1]

In January 2009, it was announced that Cameron would be a co host of Weekend Today alongside Leila McKinnon and news presenter Amber Sherlock. The program launched in February to counteract Weekend Sunrise, and has since extended to Saturday mornings.[citation needed]

In 2010, Williams joined Nine News Sydney as Friday & Saturday sport presenter.
