HollyWilliams1 HollyWilliams2

Holly Williams, CBS News international correspondent, has been selected as the midlifebachelor.com Woman of the Month for March 2015!

Holly Williams has been a foreign correspondent for CBS News since July 2012, and is based out of Istanbul, Turkey.  She reports from all over the Middle East, frequently from some of the most dangerous places on earth – such as Syria and Iraq, and the surrounding countries.  We are stunned at the amount of danger she places herself in in order to get the amazing stories we see from her every week.  You can watch Holly, and her excellent reporting on the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley at least several times each week.

There is little in the way of credible background information about Holly Williams that we could find.  We do know that she lived in China for twelve years, and speaks fluent Mandarin.  She was the Asian correspondent for Sky News, and was a producer for both Sky News and BBC News prior to joining CBS News.  She has a Bachelor’s degree in Asian Studies from the Australian National University, and Master of Arts in International Relations from Deaking University, in Melbourne, Australia.

That is pretty much all we know about Holly Williams.  We can make some educated guesses about her based on the above.  We are guessing that she grew up in Australia – which would explain her sexy accent.  We will guess that she is at least 35 years old – because she may have received her Master’s degree at age 23, then lived in China for 12 years … which puts her at roughly age 35.  We don’t know if she is married or single, or has children, etc.

Here are several videos of Holly Williams in action.  You can see especially in the first video about what we meant when we said that Holly Williams puts herself in considerable danger at times in order to get some amazing stories from some of the most dangerous places on this planet …



Typically at this point, we attempt to analyze our Woman of the Month pick in terms of the Midlifebachelor.com 14 Types of Women.  Which type or types do you suppose Holly Williams might be?  Well, she is certainly a Jackpot (see Types of Women – Jackpot) since she is a high income earner.  If you know Holly Williams personally and/or would to share something about her – please add a COMMENT to the comment section at the bottom of this page!
