Jamie Holmes

I started in a newsroom when I was 15 years old, writing copy and grabbing coffee for anchors at the old CBS affiliate in Fort Pierce, Florida.

I knew I was hooked after a drug deal went down in the station parking lot and the photographer and I chased after police as they cornered the suspects in the woods behind the station.

I graduated from the University of Florida and landed my first job at WSLS in Roanoke, Virginia. I moved back to South Florida, and worked at WPTV in West Palm Beach for more than a decade. There I covered the 2000 presidential debacle, the anthrax attacks, and more hurricanes than I care to remember.

I started at WFTV in January 2011 and I’m excited to keep covering Florida stories that matter. My philosophy in reporting the news is simple: be honest, be fair, and uncover the truth.

When I’m not working, my wife and I spend every waking moment with our three children.
