Who is Amy Holmes from Fox News?

Born Amy M. Holmes on the 25th of July 1973, in Lusaka, Zambia, Amy Holmes is a 46-year-old African-American political commentator, news anchor and former Republican strategist, with American nationality. She is perhaps best known as the host of MNSBC’s weekday program entitled “Way Too Early”. She has had various other jobs in media and politics, ranging from being a news anchor to commenting on the political situation in the US. She has been active in the often lucrative journalism business since the mid-‘90s.

Early Life and Education

Unfortunately, there isn’t much information regarding the events that took place during Amy’s early youth, although there is the little-known public fact that her parents divorced only three years after her birth. As a result, her mother decided to move out of Zambia, taking her daughter with her and leaving to ultimately settle in Seattle, Washington USA. Consequently, Amy attended an unspecified high school in the said city, but from where she matriculated prior to attending the Ivy League’s Princeton University in New Jersey, from where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in economics in 1994, after completing a senior thesis on the nature of the record-label business. During her college years, she was active in the extracurricular activities of her on-campus peers, which lead her to becoming a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta house. At some point during her university days, she also founded a non-profit animal rights organization named Ahimsa, which strongly opposed the testing of products on animals. However, there is no information as to the precise time at which Amy first took an interest in the profession she has today.


In spite of what many may think, Amy’s first job after graduation involved assisting the production of music videos, which is likely correlated with her last college thesis. After a year in this profession, in 1995 she moved to Washington DC, finally landing a position at the Independent Women’s Forum (IWF), which is a non-profit group founded by conservative women that issued various policy papers mostly proposing reform measures such as obligatory HIV testing for women in pregnancy. In Amy’s own words in an interview with Jennifer Maloney for “Daily Princetonian”, ‘I started to realize that I had a lot more sympathy for conservatives than I thought’. Thanks partly to her college degree, Amy became the IWF’s economic project director, and the nature of her work and her position itself eventually brought her to fame, allowing her to obtain a spot in the “People” magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People” in 2000. In between 1995 and 2000, she also served as a political commentator for Fox News, and afterwards she had the same position in MSNBC and CNN from 2000 to 2002. After a number of other positions, she eventually rejoined CNN as the political commentator that she still is today.

Love Life

Although Amy Holmes is not the type of celebrity to share details about her romantic life with the media, there are still a few facts that the public is aware of. It is known that Amy dated the former “New York Daily News” gossip columnist Lloyd Grove, although there is no information about the specific dates of their relationship. Additionally, there were rumors that Amy was at some point dating the writer Mickey Kaus, but these rumours were later dismissed, and replaced with the belief that the two are simply friends.

What is Amy Holmes’ Net Worth?

Have you ever wondered how rich Amy Holmes is, as of early 2018? According to various authoritative sources, it has been estimated that the current total of Amy’s accumulated wealth is over $1 million, largely aided by her numerous successes in the news industry, while the greatest contribution has come from her long-term presence on CNN. As her career continues to develop, the amount can be expected to increase.

Body Measurements

Concerning the physical attributes of the aspiring political commentator, there is unfortunately no information regarding her vital statistics. Also, there are no confirmed reports about her height and weight. Her hair is dark brown like her eyes, while her foot size also remains unknown.

Social Media Presence

Due to the major influence of social networks, it is nowadays a regular thing for active political commentators to nourish a close and active relationship with their fans, for the sake of increasing the popularity of the channels they’re working for, and thus their own net worth. However, it doesn’t seem as though Amy herself is an active subscriber to this celebrity trend, as her presence on social media networks is almost non-existent. Her Instagram and Facebook accounts are either yet to be made or hidden from the public, while her active Twitter account does boast a current following of almost 25,000 followers.
