Best TV Personality

Jill Valley


There’s an old belief in politics that voters will support the candidate they’d want to sit down and chat with over a beer. It’s a little different in the news business—trust, accuracy, etc.—but the same sentiment remains. We watch those with whom we relate, and in Missoula that continues to be the imminently chill, confident, classy and no-B.S. Jill Valley. Valley has been a mainstay in our market for decades, and while her KPAX colleagues are newer to the scene, they still do their part to help produce the region’s top newscast. We’re talking about Erin Yost’s weather forecasts and Derek Buerkle’s sports reports and Dennis Bragg’s essential Twitter feed, just to name a few. As Buerkle may put it, Valley is a clear MVP, but KPAX isn’t winning this trophy without such a strong supporting cast. Jill Valley, KPAX
