Named in memory of John Holliman (1948-1998), a national correspondent for CNN, the U.S. Cable News Network. Holliman reported extensively on the role of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in space exploration. Specifically, he served as the network's lead reporter for the Pathfinder mission to Mars, anchoring CNN's continous coverage of the landing and mission as the spacecraft beamed live video of the planet's surface.
