Chris Holmstrom is excited to be back in Arizona, to once again call the beautiful Southwest home. Chris was raised mostly in Phoenix, but moved around a lot as a "military brat." He has lived in Alabama, Germany and Panama.
Chris joined the KOLD News 13 team in August 2011. Before News 13, Chris worked at KNDU-TV in Tri-Cities, Wash. He started as a Photographer/Reporter and worked his way up to Weekend Anchor/Reporter.
Chris is also a Lumberjack! (Sorry Wildcats.) He graduated from Northern Arizona University and earned a bachelor of arts degree in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in International Communication. While in college, Chris interned for KNAZ in Flagstaff and the Warner Music Group in NYC. He also studied in the Netherlands and says it inspired him to want to explore the world.
Chris says this is a dream job for him. He has a natural curiosity about people from all walks of life and enjoys telling stories that matter.
In his free time, you can find Chris exploring the great outdoors. He loves taking pictures of beautiful scenery, listening to live music, traveling and spending time with family and friends.
