After two years working weekends, she moved on to produce and anchor NewsChannel 7 at 4, on our Fox affiliate, WZAW. After four years, she was promoted in April 2021 to co-anchor Sunrise 7 on weekdays. She also is a general assignment reporter.
Holly is a native of Appleton, Wis. She graduated in 2010 with her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Wisconsin - Oshkosh. She majored in Radio/TV/Film and has a minor in Journalism. During her first two years as an undergrad, Holly spent much of her time working at the campus radio station, 90.3 WRST. It wasn’t until Holly’s third year as an undergrad that she got her chance at everything that is TV news. She started up Titan TV News, an all student-run, once a week newscast, as a producer, anchor, reporter and director.
During her last semester, Holly interned at WLUK- Fox 11 in Green Bay, Wis.
When Holly isn't at work, you'll likely find her at home in the kitchen, cooking up a delicious creation, watching HGTV or cuddling up with her cats, Grayson and Raven.
