Personal Life: Husband And Married Life

Carol and Lester first met back in 1980 when the latter was a student at California State University. During her interview with people in 2004, Carol described her adventures' first date. On their way to date, Holt was asked to report on an out-of-control forest fire in the Napa Valley, and instead of postponing the date, the journalist "turned the fire into the date"

“I thought, ‘Wow, I’ve never been invited to go on a breaking news story before," Carol thought to herself. ‘A forest fire — that could be considered a hot date!’ So I said, ‘I’m game.’ I guess I knew what I was getting myself into with Lester and his career.”

After two wonderful years, the pair got married in 1982 and is still going strong. They are together for more than 40 years now and have lived in every relationship as a boyfriend-girlfriend, husband-wife, mother-father, and now grandmother-grandfather to the fullest.

When asked about the secret to their happy life, Lester said:

“We laugh a lot, we really do. I can be silly, she can be sillier. We just laugh through things and we know that everything, tough times will be a story at some point, and boy have I put her through some tough times with this job. I love her to death, she’s has been so wonderful, she knows this job is going to bring a lot of late-night phone calls, but she’s there for me and that means an awful lot.”

The pair has two sons; Cameron Holt and Stefan Holt. Stefan is a journalist like his old man and Cameron is an air force officer. Stefan is married to Morgan Holt and the couple became parents to their son Henry in 2017. On the other hand, Cameron lives a very private life and nothing much is revealed about him.
