In accepting a job with Albuquerque’s KOB, reporter-anchor Heather Mills was essentially following in her father’s footsteps. Mills’s father is veteran KCBS-KCAL reporter Greg Mills and he got his start at Roswell’s KBIM.
Mills comes to KOB from KAUZ in Wichita Falls, TX and her father couldn’t be happier. As she climbs the TV ranks in the southwest, the elder Mills offered her a bit of advice.
“I gave Heather two main pieces of advice,” he told TVSpy sister site FishbowlLA. “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.” Read more at FishbowlLA
Mills is making a triple digit market jump with the move, coming to KOB from KAUZ in Wichita Falls, TX, where she was the CBS-affiliate’s main anchor.
“My dad’s first TV job was actually for KBIM-TV in Roswell,” Mills said in announcing her move to Albuquerque. “My parents loved New Mexico. Living and working in Albuquerque is going to be a dream come true for me.”
Mills will be joining Joe Vigil at the anchor desk on weekends beginning March 26th. Her first day with the station is March 14th.
