T.J. was born the younger of two children; his parents gave him the nickname “T.

While at college, Holmes applied for a job at KSNF Channel 16 in Joplin, Missouri, and the employers were impressed after he personally drove from Arkansas to deliver his resume, so they gave him a job immediately. Holmes stayed there for almost a year and served as a producer, assignment reporter, and weekend anchor, establishing his net worth.
In 2000, Holmes joined the CBS affiliate KTHV in Little Rock, Arkansas to work as a general assignment reporter before being promoted to weekend anchor in 2001.

In October 2006, Holmes joined CNN as a news anchor and correspondent. He served as a co-anchor of the “Saturday & Sunday Morning’ with Betty Nguyen until 2010 when Betty left for CBS, so Holmes became the solo anchor of the newscast.
