Matt Holmes joined the 11Alive team in November 2009 as a multimedia producer
for 11Alive News Today. When "Wake Up with Chesley" debuted in April 2010, Matt
added "travel reporter/Chesley sidekick" to his job
Originally from Richmond, VA (where he watched Chesley
do the weather as a kid), Matt was most recently an anchor/reporter at the
Charlottesville Newsplex, Charlottesville, VA's CBS/ABC/FOX conglomerate. He
also spent time in Nashville, TN anchoring news and sports for 1510 WLAC and the
Tennessee Radio Network. He got his feet wet in broadcast journalism while
working as a producer/reporter at 630 WMAL during his college years at the
University of Maryland.
Matt lives in Tucker with his wife and Molly Ringwald,
their Terrier rescue puppy. Peachtree Road Methodist Church is his primary house
of worship, although Turner Field is a close second."
