My name is Holly Huntoon and I was born and raised in Warwick, Rhode Island. I attended Roger Williams University where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism. Shortly after graduating college, I started my first job as an Assignment Editor at NBC 10. Three years later, I moved on to become the Media Relations Specialist for the New Bedford Police Department. While working for the NBPD, I was recruited from City Hall to become the interim Public Information Officer for the City and for Mayor Jon Mitchell.
