Joy Holt

BIO: Joy Holt started with WBDC in 2016 as a part-time news reporter. She was recently promoted to News Director and is looking forward to bringing the most accurate and up to date news from around the local area.

Married to her husband, Mike for the past 11 years and the mother of two, she is excited to be part of the Jasper community and thinks there is no better place to raise a child then in the mid-west.

She has quickly alienated herself from her co-workers with her abrasive and at times domineering personality. The only reason she is tolerated is because of her wonderful sense of humor, excellent taste in dirty tennis shoes and passion for showing up daily to her job.
