Alan Holt was born and raised in San Antonio where he graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio with a bachelor's degree in Communication. He also holds a master's degree in Geosciences, with a focus on Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University.
While attending Mississippi State, Alan was a proud member of The Famous Maroon Band, playing the snare drum.
Before returning to Texas, Alan spent two years at the ABC affiliate in Wyoming (KTWO). He gained valuable experience forecasting many different types of weather and was recognized by the Wyoming Association of Broadcasters as one of the best meteorologists in the state. From blizzards to tornadoes, nothing was out of the question in the Rocky Mountain West.
Alan holds the National Weather Association's Seal of Approval, "on the basis of meteorological competency, communication skills, and production values." The certification required a passing score of 80-percent on a 100-question examination of meteorological competency and a vigorous on-air evaluation to obtain.
During the time Alan has been in Corpus Christi, he is most proud of his coverage of Hurricane Harvey, undoubtedly helping to save lives during the powerful Category 4 land falling hurricane in 2017. Less than four months after Harvey came the December snow in 2017, another highlight of Alan's tenure in the Coastal Bend. Alan also hosts many elite social events for various non-profit organizations on a regular basis throughout the year.
When Alan is not on air, it's a good bet you can find him on a golf course somewhere in the Coastal Bend. His goal on the golf course is to become a scratch golfer, but he currently carries a 5-8 stroke handicap -- not too shabby. Alan also loves to play the drums, go to Hooks games, and call for 'sunny delights' when the weather is forecast to be exceptionally nice.
