Alison Holloway (born 2 February 1961) is an English journalist and media personality, now living in the United States. She was the original presenter of Sky Television's Sky World News Tonight and is now a television producer and reporter in the US.


Born in Bristol, Holloway began her television career at the age of 17 as a continuity announcer and newsreader at Westward Television. She then went to HTV West in Bristol, at first joining the company as a reporter-presenter, then anchoring HTV News. Holloway remained with the station through most of the 1980s, combining her news duties with presenting many other local programmes for HTV West, including the Good Neighbour Show and the networked Animal Express.

She co-presented ITV's Olympic Games coverage in 1988, and moved to Sky at the launch of Sky News in 1989. She helped launch the South East edition of Meridian Tonight in 1993. She also hosted the current affairs show Newsline, as well as numerous news, game and quiz shows, and was correspondent for the 1994 Whitbread Round-the-World Yacht Race and ITV’s Rugby World Cup, and London-based correspondent for the American syndicated newsmagazines Hard Copy (Paramount Television) and A Current Affair (Fox).

In 1994, she moved from Britain to America to anchor a news magazine, Premier Story and covered the O.J. Simpson murder case and trial. Remaining in Los Angeles, she later hosted programs for Court TV, ABC, UPN, Showtime and other channels. She also worked as director or producer for Fox's network primetime series The Swan and "Kitchen Nightmares", NBC's "America's Got Talent", Court TV's documentary film, Death of A Beatle; Fox Television’s Bizarre World specials; produced specials for Court TV and Animal Planet. In 2005, she was supervising producer and on-air talent for a short-lived revival of Twentieth Television’s A Current Affair.

Personal life

She married comedian Jim Davidson in 1987, divorcing him just two years on. It was later revealed that he had been violent towards her, and in his book Tabloid Baby, her current husband, fellow journalist Burt Kearns, with whom she now has a son and a daughter, wrote that he considered having Davidson knee-capped as penance.
