Kim Holland, KRQE News 13
I’ve been reporting people’s stories for nearly two decades and I can’t see myself doing anything else. Everyone has a story to tell and I’m honored to be able to share them with others. As a Special Assignment Reporter, I enjoy digging up the truth, exposing wasteful spending and confronting people who are ripping us off.
I’m a recipient of two Regional Emmys, several New Mexico Broadcaster Awards including one for Best Reporter and have received awards from The Associated Press.
Some of my more memorable stories: traveling to Texas in 2003 for the Columbia Space Shuttle explosion and being at ground zero after 9-11 where an Albuquerque church retrieved beams for its bell tower. By far my most favorite TV experience was pulling 9 Gs in an F-16 Thunderbird jet.
I was born in Denver, Colorado and moved to Reno, Nevada for a period of time. I returned to Fort Collins, Colorado where I majored in journalism at Colorado State University.
I have worked in Duluth, Minnesota, Omaha, Nebraska and here in Albuquerque, New Mexico as a producer, editor, anchor and reporter. I’ve been in the Duke City since August 2000 and consider this my home.
It’s easy to fall in love with New Mexico’s warm weather, the landscape and green chile, which I now can’t live without.
Most viewers may not know I’ve got a wild side to me. I’m a skydiver who likes to drop from the sky at 120mph. I also like running, golf, hiking and almost anything outside.
