Loutelious “T. J.” Holmes, Jr. serves as one of many faces over at ABC, where he joined in Dec. 2014. Prior to joining ABC, Holmes spent five years as anchor of “CNN Saturday/Sunday Morning,” reporting on significant news stories including Saddam Hussein’s execution in 2006, the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India in 2008 and at Glasgow Airport in 2007.
In October 2012, Holmes signed a signed a deal to host the late-night talk show “DON’T SLEEP!,” which earned him an NAACP Image Award Nomination shortly after its premiere. You may also recall that the 39-year-old covered much of the George Zimmerman trial on CNN’s “Headline News” before serving as a contributing anchor to MSNBC from 2013-2014.
These days, ABC is his permanent home.
