‘We Instead Of Me’: What Persuaded Art Holliday To Lead KSDK?

<‘We Instead Of Me’: What Persuaded Art Holliday To Lead KSDK?>

Then • I came to KMOX-TV (now KMOV) in September 1970 straight from Mizzou's journalism school. After four months as a writer and film editor I was promoted to on-air reporter in January 1971. I spent nearly 19 years at Channel 4 reporting and anchoring. I served as political editor and hosted the public affairs show "Newsmakers." In July 1989, I moved to KTVI where I continued to cover politics until I retired at the end of 2016. At Channel 2, I anchored weekend newscasts for just over four years before returning to full-time reporting. In addition to politics, I covered every flood since 1973, 11 presidential nominating conventions, both the Missouri and Illinois governors and legislatures, major court cases, the pope's visit, several World Series, multiple crime cases and the Ferguson unrest.


 The 2016 election capped my 46-year career as a broadcast journalist in St. Louis. I expected to kick back, relax and read books as a new retiree. Instead, in nearly four years my husband and I have downsized, renovated a condo, traveled to visit family and friends and taken cruises to the Panama Canal and Alaska. We have welcomed two grandsons and enjoyed family time with our daughter and son-in-law here in town. My church community group and volunteer work help me stay connected. I’ve been helping an exciting young charity, the Collective Thread, with grant writing. This nonprofit works to revive an industrial sewing workforce in St. Louis by training immigrant and underserved residents. This fall we received a major grant from the state of Missouri to purchase advanced equipment to help manufacture PPE (medical isolation gowns).
