Jessica Holmes is known as an American news anchor. She is most famous for her work on KTLA Morning News in Los Angeles.
Jessica Renee Holmes was born on November 17, 1976 in Cleveland, Ohio. The famous and beloved TV host was a surprisingly shy kid from middle school to high school in Florida. “I wasn’t that kid in the school plays or the choir. I didn’t want to have the spotlight on me at all.”
Jessica graduated from the University of Central Florida and received her Bachelor’s Degree in Radio and Television.
In March 2015, Jessica announced that she got engaged to her fiancé, Arie Solomon. On May 25th, 2015, she revealed publically that she was pregnant. Both announcements were made on live TV, on KTLA Morning News. Five months later, on October 8, 2015, her son Levi was born.
Jessica Holmes' career began when she accepted a position as the co-host of the popular Nickelodeon TV series Slime Time Live in 1999. She first started as an intern before using her talent to move up to the hosting position. The show was a huge success for the Nickelodeon network as it aired for eight consecutive seasons. Part of her role as co-host was to go get "slimed" or "pied". She described her job duties during an interview: “Part of my job description was to get slimed and pied on a daily basis. You can’t really beat that for a day of work.”
Jessica told Kidz World how excited she was about Slime Time when they asked if it was her dream job to be the host, “For this point in my life, yes, it is. Because it was my first opportunity I didn't expect to be where I am - it just fell in my lap and that was the most exciting thing for me. I was just an intern here and I wanted to be on TV but I didn't know how to go about it. It's hard when you first start out because you don't know how to do it, or how to get to where you wanna go. In the future, I would love to work on a show like Regis and Kelly, The View, or The Today Show.”
In the year 2000, Jessica moved to New York to anchor the show Bragging Rights on the Outdoor Life Network. It was a reality show that had male contestants taking part in challenging and daring outdoor sports. In 2005, after her stint in New York, she packed up and headed to Los Angeles. “I didn’t know anybody so I’m not sure what I was thinking. Being in television was such a fun job. I wasn’t really sure what else I could do.”
Jessica joined KTLA which was a local news station in Los Angeles. Initially, she was the weather reporter for the network’s program, Prime News. She was added to the show after winning a competition called The Audition. The producers of the KTLA Morning News show felt it was a great idea to hold an open casting call. They felt if they formatted like popular reality TV contests that it would draw a large number of talented contestants.
After winning the contest, Jessica was made the co-anchor of the Morning News at KTLA and also served as the weathercaster and anchor for the afternoon news show. During all those years at KTLA, the multi-faceted news anchor covered a wide range of topics on a daily basis.
She has covered reports on dangerous weather like floods, earthquakes, and wildfires. The fearless reporter has covered the Royal wedding of Prince William in London and interviewed celebrities like Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie in Paris, Jermaine Jackson on the death of his brother Michael, not to mention that she spent a day with Martha Stewart and Paula Deen.
Jessica has won three Golden Mike awards. One of her most famous shows Slime Time Live was awarded Outstanding Children’s Program in 2002 by the Motion Picture and Television Association of Florida.
