Debbie Holmes

Debbie Holmes began her career in broadcasting in Columbus after graduating from The Ohio State University. She left the Buckeye state to pursue a career in television news and worked as a reporter and anchor in Moline, Illinois and Memphis, Tennessee.

She returned to radio news after moving to Los Angeles and earned 2 Golden Mike awards for live news reporting. In 2002, she earned her MBA at Franklin University.

In September 2009, she returned to her career roots and started working part-time at WOSU News and in December 2010 began working full-time. She enjoys public broadcasting because it allows her to cover news stories in-depth. Debbie and her husband have two children.

The race to become Ohio’s next governor continues to grow. Like the three Democrats who jumped into the 2018 race in recent weeks, Northeast Ohio Congressman Jim Renacci says he’s best-served to represent working-class Ohioans.
