Holt has been in the news business for the better part of 35 years. In 2000, he joined NBC News and is known for his outstanding work in the field, reporting and anchoring from breaking news events across the globe. Holt is deeply committed to providing viewers on-the-ground, first-person accounts.
“It was an honor to get to know this man better. He is such a professional,” said Patsy Smullin, President/Owner of KOBI-TV/NBC5 and KOTI-TV/NBC2.
In part two, Patsy talks with Jenna Bush Hager on the set of the Today Show in New York. Bush Hagar is no stranger to the limelight. She and her sister Barbara are the children of the 43rd US President George W. Bush and the grandchildren of the 41st President George H. W. Bush.
Known for their wild side as teenagers, Bush Hagar is now married with 3 children of her own. The youngest, her first son, was born a short time after this interview.
After her father's presidency, Bush Hager became a teacher, an author, an editor-at-large for Southern Living magazine, and a television personality on NBC, being featured most prominently as a member of The Today Show as a correspondent, contributor and co-host of the Today Show with Hoda & Jenna.
Patsy Smullin, President/Owner of KOBI-TV/NBC5 and KOTI-TV/NBC2, said “I so enjoyed talking with Jenna on the set of the Today Show.”
