Hollani Davis



Wake up with Hollani Davis every weekday morning on WPTV. You can catch her anchoring on "Today on 5" from 5 a.m. to 7 a.m.

Hollani came to the station in 2014. She quickly became a favorite with South Florida viewers for her storytelling and her personality. Hollani is focused on telling viewers’ stories and pushing for accountability and answers.

Hollani has been at the helm of WPTV’s coverage for some of the biggest stories in the past decade, including the Parkland shooter verdict and sentencing, the Surfside collapse and the historic flooding in Fort Lauderdale in April 2023. She became even more of a mainstay in homes during the pandemic as one of few journalists who physically reported to the TV station during the time of social distancing.

 Hollani began her career at KTXS in Abilene, Texas before moving to WDBJ in Roanoke, Virginia. There, she gained a knack for covering politics—landing interviews with former president Barack Obama and former Virginia Governor Mark Warner, among others.

During her 20-year journalism career, Hollani has garnered several awards. She won the 2022 “Anchor” award from the Florida Association of Broadcast Journalists. She’s also a multi-Emmy Award winner.

Hollani is a proud graduate of Hampton University, a member of the Jack and Jill Palm Beach Chapter and belongs to Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated. She is a Girl Scout troop leader for the Girl Scout Council of Southeast Florida.

Hollani spends a good portion of her time emceeing different community events and mentoring youth. She’s also advocated for Black Maternal Health and for families with pre-mature babies.

Hollani and her husband are self-proclaimed foodies. They are beyond thankful for the high-quality family lifestyle that is South Florida. The couple has three young daughters.
