His talent and hardship have earned him the recognition of another station in the NBC family. And luckily, we got to see father and son team up to anchor a program. He left NBC 5 Chicago for having a position in WNBC in New York.

It was definitely easy for Stefan to use his father’s name and enter into the showbiz but he chose the hard way. He entered by his own talent and hard work.

According to the news published by The New York Daily News, Some NBC News employers were unhappy with Stefan Holt’s recruit, suggesting that he used his father’s name. But no one was able to overlook his hard work and devotion towards his work and later, as a result, he got consistent promotion in his work and was awarded too.

Lester once told NBC5, “I have a picture of Stefan sitting at the desk at WBBM from right around the time I started as an anchor there. Stefan was up there, with his arms crossed, ready to go. At 2 ½ years old he already had the look.”

Stefan has always loved media and journalism. He graduated from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California with a Bachelor of Arts degree in broadcast telecommunications in 2009.

He used to work for the college network Palestra.net while in college and held internships with KABC-TV in Los Angeles and NBC News in London before joining WPBF in May 2009.

He met his better half Morgan while at Pepperdine University. They got married in July 2012 and are a happy couple.

Three years ago, @theyoungrens took incredible pictures capturing our wedding day. Last night, we had so much fun shooting some MORE photos with them along the Chicago River. A great reminder that I am still head over heels in love with my beautiful bride. @mogoho looks drop dead gorgeous! Via @repostapp. ・・・ Had quite the day yesterday photographing these two lovebirds in one of our favorite cities. Chicago + The Youngrens = Perfection. -E #theyoungrens #theyoungrenstravels @stefholtnbc @mogoho

As Stefan needed to move New York as his work shifted from Chicago to New York, he sold his newly bought Lakeview East Condo located in Chicago and again bought a new house in New York.

Lester Holt is a famous NBC anchor whose family includes his loving wife Carol Hagen and two sons, Cameron and Stefan. It seems like anchoring is Lester Holt’s family affair as his son Stefan Holt has started his career by joining WNBC.

The father-son duo is now employed in the same profession. Inspiration to many people, Lester Holt has certainly inspired his son and now he is walking in his father’s footsteps.

Did Lester Holt’s name make his son’s entry into the industry easier?

It’s been 35 years that Lester Holt has been anchoring and still today, he is devoted to his work. He is a respectful personality among his colleagues and his followers.

He still holds the capability to increase the ratings and viewership of his show. Seems like Holt’s family affair is anchoring because the next generation of the Holt family has also stepped into the same profession.

25-year-old Stefan holt is currently an NBC anchor at WMAQ-TV in New York. Stefan joined NBC 5, Chicago in June 2011 as a reporter and weekend morning anchor. Stefan quickly moved up to anchor weekday morning and midday newscasts.
