Jill Galus is a general assignment reporter at KOB Eyewitness News 4.
Prior to moving to Albuquerque in March 2012, Jill lived in Las Cruces for two years, where she reported for ABC-7 in El Paso, TX. She has covered stories on both sides of the border, and looks forward to continuing to share the stories of New Mexico.
Born and raised in Michigan, Jill fell in love with the Southwest when she moved to Phoenix to attend Arizona State University in the fall of 2005. She graduated with a degree in Broadcast Journalism from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, and was chosen to address her class as the student speaker on graduation day in May 2009.
Within four years, Jill completed more than six internships in radio, print and television news. During that time, she also anchored and reported for the Cronkite School’s award-winning newscast, “Cronkite NewsWatch," and received a William Randolph Hearst Award.
Jill wakes up extra early each morning to watch HLN’s “Morning Express with Robin Meade” and “The Today Show.” Her greatest escapes include traveling, fashion, and exploring any outdoor physical activity.
Jill says it’s impossible to consider reporting a job, since doing what she loves hardly feels like work at all.
