Heather Mills

Heather Mills joined KSNV in December 2016, happily trading in her snow boots for a swimming pool.

A self-proclaimed southwestern girl, Heather comes to Las Vegas from Denver, Colorado where she was an anchor and reporter for KDVR/KWGN. Prior to that, Heather anchored the top-rated morning news at KOB-TV in Albuquerque, New Mexico. That's where she fell in love with green chile and developed a taste for extra spicy food! She got her television start as a news writer at KFMB-TV in San Diego after graduating from the University of San Diego. She later landed her first on-air job as an anchor in Wichita Falls, Texas.

Heather was born in Tucson and has been lucky enough to call so many great cities, home. From Phoenix, Denver, San Diego, Los Angeles, over to Wichita Falls and back to Albuquerque, Heather is happy to have landed in Las Vegas to complete her myriad of moves. No stranger to the Silver State, Heather is thrilled to plant some roots and soak in all that Nevada has to offer as a new homeowner! Even her rescue dog, Napoleon, is happy to be back in the desert. Don't be surprised to see her with her pooch and husband out and about exploring the outdoors.

And it's easy to chat with her, she'd love to hear from you. Find her on Facebook, Twitter.com, or Instagram. And if you have a story idea, shoot her an email at h.mills@sbgtv.com.

Murrow award, an SPJ award and won the Oklahoma Salute to Excellence award for best anchor. She also won various community awards.

Latoya got her first break at BET Nightly News in Washington D.C. She started the day before 9/11. What began as an unpaid internship quickly turned into a paid position and a valuable experience. Latoya’s career stops also include KCEN-TV in Waco, Texas and WYFF News 4 in Greenville/Spartanburg SC. Her career highlights include covering the Joplin Tornado, field anchoring the NBA Finals in Oklahoma City, reporting from the Coretta Scott King funeral in Atlanta, following President George W. Bush during his trips to Crawford, TX, covering President Barack Obama's trip to Oklahoma and moderating a forum on the "War on Terrorism".
