Holly Maynard joined the Eyewitness News team in June 2010. She anchors the weekend editions of Eyewitness News at 6 and 11pm on WSOC-TV and at 10 p.m. on WAXN-TV 64. She also reports for Eyewitness News during the week.
Before coming to Channel 9, Holly was an anchor/reporter at WHAM-TV in Rochester, NY. During her time in Rochester, Holly was honored by the Associated Press for “Best Continuing Coverage” of a fatal tanker crash in a Rochester neighborhood. She traveled to Toronto multiple times to cover one of the area’s biggest economic stories – plans for a fast ferry between the two cities. She also hosted a half hour prime time special covering a local family’s appearance on ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” The harsh Western New York winters also kept Holly busy. She was on the air during several snow and ice storms that shut down parts of the Rochester area.
Before working at WHAM-TV, Holly was an anchor/reporter at WBNG-TV in Binghamton, NY. She also worked behind the scenes at WFSB-TV in Hartford, Connecticut and for the “Today” show in New York City. Holly graduated Summa Cum Laude from the Honors program at Syracuse University with a dual major in Broadcast Journalism and Political Science.
Holly is originally from Wallingford, Connecticut. After growing up in the northeast and spending 13 years in Upstate New York, she is thrilled to enjoy the warmer weather in Charlotte. When she’s not working Holly loves yoga, Pilates, running, volunteering, and traveling. She lives with her husband and young daughter.
