It didn't take long for Holly to fall in love with the South Carolina Lowcountry! The beautiful beaches, seafood and, especially, the friendly faces won her over.
Since 2006 Holly has been the SC Lowcountry Reporter for WSAV. In 2009 she helped launch My Lowcountry 3 on My TV and has been the anchor since. She is a true multi-media journalist: shoots, writes, edits her daily stories then solo-anchors a one-hour show. The days are long, but fun!
Holly is originally from Bishopville, SC, home of the renowned Lizard Man. Her journalism journey began in high school when she wrote for her hometown newspaper, the Lee County Observer. She went on to earn a Broadcast Journalism degree with a minor in Elementary Education from the University of South Carolina. While in school, Holly started, produced and hosted a teen talk show, Extra Credit, for Richland One Television. She also worked for the South Carolina Broadcasters Association and interned at WIS-TV in Columbia.
After graduation Holly worked with SC Educational Television for a year. There she earned first place honors for Political Reporting from the Radio Television News Directors Association of the Carolinas for a 30 minute special report on the political life of the late Gov. Carroll Campbell. Holly also spent two weeks on the Gulf Coast showcasing the many ways South Carolinians helped in the Katrina relief effort. Her program from that, When They Say Storm, earned a 2006 Telly Award.
While at WSAV Holly has earned awards for photojournalism , feature reporting and general reporting. The one she's most proud of, though, is her 2010 Edward R. Murrow Regional Award for Writing.
Holly resides in Bluffton with her husband Brian and two rescue dogs, Bandy and Oreo. In her free time she enjoys trying new restaurants, going to concerts and spending time with her friends and family. Holly has embraced the social media world and invites you to follow her on Twitter at @hollybounds where you will find candid updates while she's out in the field.
