Holly Morris Work Experience
Morris works with the FOX5 News team where she serves as a Morning News Anchor and as a Co-Host for Good Day DC. Morris joins a great coffee and this is the origin of her energy. In addition to the coffee energy, she is also a very hard-working journalist and lives large in addition to being a kind girl. She also never disagrees when people tell her she has the best job in the world.
The Good Day DC is a show that is about the pulse of the people. There, they talk about everything ranging from the latest trending to the latest celebrity dish. In addition, they never hold back. She also counts it a privilege to be working on the station’s “Pay It Forward” Campaign. Holly states that this is her chance to share stories of the people in the area who are doing great things not just because they want to be noticed but because they want to turn the world into a better place. In addition, she can’t tell how rewarding that is to her.
Her path to the news world was not very straight. She holds a degree in civil and environmental engineering. Among her favorite papers, she wrote in college was known as “All Blondes Aren’t Dizzy.” The reason she is learning celebrity make-up tips and celebrating National Tortilla Chip Day live on TV instead of working on her engineering career was Engineering was her backup plan. To her news was a dream and luckily the dream came to pass.
This journey has included working and making stops in Ohio, Lexington, Steubenville, and Kentucky which was before she set in the nation’s capital. To her stating it has been an adventure is an understatement. She is one of the first crews at the Pentagon on 911 where she also pulled 9 G’s when she flew with the Air Force Thunderbirds.
These are some of the incredible memories that the news has offered her. However, what she treasures most are the everyday people and places that she gets to experience and that an anchoring job wouldn’t allow. In addition, she counts herself lucky to have won nine regional Emmys where five of them were for “Best Live Reporting.” In addition, she is a recipient of the regional Edward R. Murrow award.
Away from work, she loves a good book, a nice glass of red wine, knitting as it is her way to bring down her blood pressure, the start of vacation, and Skyline chili (Cincinnati is my hometown). In addition, she loves when people say hi when they meet her out on the street, therefore feel free to say hi when you meet her out and about.
