Michelle Millman anchors the morning and noon news at KIRO 7, the TV station she grew up watching.
Michelle is a UW grad and former KIRO 7 intern and is thrilled to be working with such great co-workers and journalists.
She got her TV start in Lewiston, Idaho where she did just about everything to get a story on the air. A fond Idaho memory is skydiving, although she hasn’t jumped from a plane since!
From Idaho, it was on to Yakima for a few years and soon, Michelle was part of the Emmy award winning morning news team at KIRO 7.
Since she’s a big football fan, Michelle was thrilled to head to Detroit in 2006 for KIRO 7’s coverage of the Seahawks historic Super Bowl game. She’s hoping to do it again -- SOON!
In July of 2009 Michelle was diagnosed with Stage 2b breast cancer. She underwent a double mastectomy and five months of chemotherapy, followed by radiation. From day one after her diagnosis, Michelle felt a responsibility to share what she was learning and began writing about her experience. Michelle is still involved with a number of organizations -- trying to do all she can to raise breast cancer awareness and the importance of self-breast checks. Her ultimate goal, though, is helping raise money to find a cure.
In her spare time, Michelle enjoys volunteering with Seattle Humane Society’s Tuxes and Tails and co-hosting the Miss Washington pageant. Another “tough” duty is judging the annual firefighter calendar contest for the Northwest Burn Foundation.
Michelle’s husband is a captain with the Everett Fire Department. (And no, they didn’t meet when she was reporting from a fire; they were high school sweethearts in Renton) They love raising their two sons right here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
