Veteran KCBS 2 and KCAL 9 reporter Greg Mills is beaming these days, thanks to the biggest step forward made yet by his TV journalist daughter Heather. A twentysomething graduate of the University of San Diego, she recently landed a job as reporter and weekend co-anchor for Albuquerque NBC affiliate KOB-TV Channel 4.
FishbowlLA caught up with Mills sr. today via telephone from Pomona, where he was on location with “Unit 57” for a report about how Californians are rushing to stock up on earthquake supplies, post-Japan. “I gave Heather two main pieces of advice,” he reveals. “Be yourself; keep in mind that they’re hiring you, not someone else. At the same time, watch the other people around you and learn. She’s now with very seasoned anchors at KOB, people that have been doing it 15, 20 years.”
