Holmes is back on TV…

Just a little over a year after leaving West Palm Beach’s WPTV, for life off the air, Jamie Holmes is back on television.

Astute Florida News Center readers have noticed Holmes on Orlando’s WFTV, co-anchoring the station’s weekend newscasts with Liz Artz (bottom right).

Holmes left WPTV in Oct 2009, after being passed over for a weekday anchoring position, that went to fellow anchor Jay Cashmere. After leaving WPTV, Holmes told the Palm Beach Post – “I realized it was time to get out of the business. I felt like all of my opportunities in television had been exhausted and I was looking for other companies that offered me more opportunities.” He left the station to join a Rivera Beach global marketing company.
