Reporter leaving for Savannah anchor job

Posted August 22, 2013

After three years with WRAL News, reporter Kevin Holmes is leaving to become the new anchor at WJCL/WTGS-TV, the ABC/FOX station in Savannah, Ga.

His last day will be Sunday. Holmes came to WRAL in 2010 and spent time on the morning news. He then transitioned to the evening newscasts.

"It’s been a pleasure to watch Kevin grow as a journalist here," said WRAL news director Rick Gall. "I’m sure his creativity in writing and delivering stories caught the attention of those hiring at WJCL/WTGS-TV in Savannah. Moving to the anchor desk is a big step for Kevin, and we wish him great success as his career unfolds."

Holmes previously worked as a reporter at WPTY-TV in Memphis, Tenn., and at WJRT-TV in Flint, Mich. He graduated from Lake Forest College in Lake Forest, Ill., with a Bachelor of Arts in communications in 2003.

“While I have truly enjoyed my time here, this is an opportunity and a challenge I’m eager to accept," Holmes said. "Since I arrived here at WRAL in 2010, this environment and the good people around me have helped me grow as a journalist and as a man. For that, I will forever be thankful and indebted."
