Becky Hillier

Becky was born and raised in the booming metropolis of Miles City, Montana! It's also where she met the nice man who would eventually become her husband. After getting married, they moved to Rapid City, South Dakota and started a family. That's also where Becky began her television news career as the main anchor and health reporter at the new start-up NBC affiliate, KNBN.   

Her next job would be as the main anchor and health reporter at the NBC affiliate in Madison, Wisconsin. After a few years in Madtown and after attending countless UW Badger football and basketball games, the Hillier crew moved back to Montana to be closer to family and Becky pursued opportunities outside of the news business. She anchored for a time at Q2 in Billings, worked for Rocky Mountain Hospice as its regional public relations director and then, the news business beckoned once again and she finds herself in the main anchor chair, alongside evening co-anchor Greg LaMotte. Prior to moving to evenings again, she was the anchor of the company's two-hour long statewide morning show Wake Up Montana, from its debut in December 2014 until July 2017. 

She anchors much of the statewide election coverage for Cowles Montana Media and was privileged to be chosen to serve as a moderator for a gubernatorial debate, as well as a panelist for the same candidates in another debate, and a panelist for the congressional debate between then-incumbent U.S. Congressman Ryan Zinke and his challenger Denise Juneau. 

Becky has a servant's heart and has always been very involved in every community in which she's lived, lending her time and talents to a number of organizations including the Children's Miracle Network, the United Way, The Theresa McGovern Center, and the Second Harvest Foodbank. One of her proudest accomplishments was being a board member of Big Sky Honor Flight - the statewide effort that sent 755 Montana WWII veterans to Washington, D.C. to see their war memorials at no cost to them.  

Becky loves to travel the highways and byways of our beautiful state and has had the good fortune of also visiting more exotic locations in Japan, Italy, South Korea, Iwo Jima, Hawaii, North Korea and London! Though she enjoys the news business, her favorite occupations are those of "wife" and "mom."
