At WPTV, Holmes had expected to succeed longtime anchor Chandra Bill on the station’s 5 and 5:30 p.m. newscasts. Bill was set to retire in the spring but the NBC-affiliate instead chose Jay Cashmere as her successor. Holmes put in his two weeks notice following the move and said that he was leaving TV.
At the time, Holmes told TCPalm that he 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.”
