Raetta Holdman joined CBS4 News in 1988 as the 6 a.m. producer. In her two decades, she has produced various newscasts throughout the day as well as as events such as Election Night coverage, candidate debates and Broncos victory parades along with many breaking news events and snow coverage.
She is a graduate of the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Journalism with a degree in Broadcasting and a degree in economics from the University’s College of Arts and Sciences.
Raetta is a native of Missouri who often vacationed in Colorado as a child, including just missing the Big Thompson Flood because a change in plans took the family from Estes Park to Colorado Springs. When the opportunity arose to move to Denver from Florida, she leapt at it and never looked back.
She is the mother of two amazing children and shares her home in Park Hill with two semi-crazy cats.
