Holly Henry is the morning Online Producer for WTKR and WGNT.

Growing up in Virginia Beach, Holly has a passion for what's going on in Hampton Roads. She graduated from Radford University, Magna Cum Laude, with a major in Media Studies, a minor in English, and a concentration in Journalism. Holly interned at WTKR in Norfolk the summer before graduating from Radford.

Holly has always been interested in writing, and media. After graduation, she moved from Radford, Va. back to Virginia Beach, where she became a promotions assistant, and overnight announcer at FM99/106.9 The Fox, WNOR/WAFX in Chesapeake, Va. She also helped produce for the radio station's website there. In October of 2009, Holly accepted an offer from WTKR to be the nightside Online Producer. Since then, Holly has made the transition to morning Online Producer.

Aside from journalism, another love of hers is the beach. Holly enjoys running at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront, practicing yoga, and stand-up paddleboarding. Holly's life wouldn't be complete without spending time with family, friends, and of course with her pets, Browning and Me-mow (Australian Shepherd and house cat). Holly is proud to be a VB local - and lover of the ocean.

    Smoking, drinking, prescription drug abuse by teens is down, survey says

    More areas approved for beach driving on the Outer Banks

    More areas for beach driving in the Outer Banks — that’s the idea behind a portion of the Defense Authorization Act. The act was approved by the Senate this weekend. Buried in the legislation is a section about the National Seashore. Basically, when buffers are put up for wildlife they must be as small as possible, and they must come down quickly. Also, if areas are closed to beach driving for wildlife, a detour must be put in place. The National […]

    N.C. teen’s hanging death ruled a suicide; mother says it was a lynching

    BLADENBORO, North Carolina (CNN) — Claudia Lacy says she can accept anything: even that her youngest son committed suicide — if it’s proven and explained to her.

Prove to me what happened to my child,” Lacy says. She says she’s […]

    Is there a vending machine that can deny you snacks?

    In the mood for potato chips? In the future, you may need a snack machine’s approval, according to a recent report from Newser. The Luce X2 Touch TV vending machine has facial-recognition technology, meaning it can, apparently, identify customers and remember their snacking profiles. That means, for instance, that it could offer you your favorite chips—or perhaps deny you an unhealthy snack based on your age or medical records, the Telegraph reports. A gym could, for instance, set up the […]
