Holly Bernstein

Multi-Media Journalist, Fill-In Anchor, Producer

Holly Bernstein graduated from Arizona State University in May 2019 with Bachelor’s Degrees in broadcast journalism and global studies.

A week after graduation, she packed up her car and took a road trip across the country to move to Mankato.

Friends, colder weather, nature and the chance to do what she loves brought her to Minnesota.

Holly Bernstein is passionate about telling stories that matter to the viewers and is excited to be part of the KEYC News 12 team as a Multi-Media Journalist.

While in school, Holly was a political reporter for her college’s newscast. She also held journalism internships, including one abroad in London, England, for a semester.

-- What's your favorite part of your job?

Every single day is different. I get to tell different stories every day.

-- What's your dream story?

I love covering stories related to politics and agriculture.

-- What did you want to be when you were growing up?

It changed a lot, but I always wanted to do something related to creating, writing, shooting video and editing.

-- What got you interested in (news, sports, weather)?

I competed in Speech and Debate in high school, which is what piqued my interest in current events and storytelling. Journalism combined those interest with my love for writing, shooting and editing. I can’t imagine doing anything else.

-- What's your favorite candy?

Jammie Dodgers and Cadbury Marvellous Creation Jelly Popping Candy Shells (both British!)

-- If you could have any super power, which would you pick?

I’d choose the ability to travel anywhere with the snap of my fingers.

I’d visit London again.

I’ve been told I look like Anne Hathaway.
