Jessica Holley


Memphis, TN

Jessica Holley joined the WMC Action News 5 team in October 2016.

Jessica grew up in Plano, Texas and she loves her cowboy boots. She decided at the young age of 9 that she wanted to be a journalist after she was interviewed by her hometown ABC affiliate about her house fire. It was at that moment the spark and desire to share others' stories began.

She is a proud graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism (M-I-Z!) and is known to wear black and gold on game days year round.

Before moving to Memphis, Jessica worked in Oklahoma City, Corpus Christi and Wichita Falls as a reporter and multimedia journalist.

Jessica loves to cook (something her mother taught her to do), travel, attend festivals and events on the weekend and she loves to cheer on her Missouri Tigers.

Most of all, she'd like to meet you and tell your story.

Please feel free to send Jessica an email, a tweet or a Facebook message to say hello or share a story idea.

Watch Jessica on WMC Action News 5 weekdays at 5 and 6 p.m.
