Holt Noel

Deborah Holt Noel is a producer and on-air talent at North Carolina’s statewide PBS network UNC-TV.  As host and contributing producer of the network’s weekly travel and leisure program “North Carolina Weekend”, she travels the state’s small towns and big cities to bring viewers stories about great destinations for recreation and adventure, wining and dining, cultural events and exploration, family fun, night life and relaxation.

Noel also produces and occasionally hosts “Black Issues Forum”, a weekly 30-minute public affairs program about people and concerns of the state’s African American community.

Although Noel lived in several states growing up in a military family, she considers herself a true North Carolinian with parents born and raised in Raleigh. Noel is a graduate of  Saint Augustine’s University. 

After obtaining her masters degree at the University of Maryland and several years of work at a small film company in Northern Virginia, Noel moved to the Triangle in 1999 and through work on “North Carolina Weekend” fell in love with the beauty and diversity of the state from its rugged mountains to crisp coastal waters. 

Deciding to give her talents back to others, Noel held the positon of adjunct professor in 2001-2002 at her alma mater, teaching courses in Writing for Broadcast, Editing, Television Production, and Desktop Publishing.

Today she enjoys being a wife and mother and looks forward to sharing more of the state with new and long-time viewers of every age.

“North Carolina Weekend” airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. and Fridays at 8:30 p.m. “Black Issues Forum” airs Sundays at 11:30 a.m. and Mondays at 5 p.m. www.unctv.org
