Sarah Gravlee is ABC FOX Montana's News Director. Being able to live and work in Montana and bring you the ABC FOX Montana News is a privilege Sarah Gravlee does not take lightly.
You can count on her to check the facts and bring you interesting perspectives on the day's top stories. Sarah's been a reporter since she had baby teeth. She started a school newspaper in her 4th grade class and has been searching down breaking news ever since.
People often ask where Sarah is from, and there's not a simple answer. She moved often as a kid and usually tells people, "The mountains are my home." In college Sarah worked as a counselor and wrangler at a dude ranch in Colorado and had just as much fun wrangling kids as horses.
She spent six years in Billings working as an anchor, reporter and producer at the NBC affiliate, KULR-8 News. There she covered everything from fair food at MontanaFair to the Montana Air National Guard's response to the devastating earthquake in Haiti.
She's particularly proud of her work with the Guard, an investigative series she did tracking down a California Conman who was trying to convert the Hardin Jail into a para-military training center, and her live coverage of a triple murder and manhunt in the Crow Nation. All three stories earned her top honors from the Society of Professional Journalists, but the biggest honor an anchor can get is knowing that you trust her to bring you the news.
In her free time she likes to hit the trails with her husband Jeff and their pound puppy, Pepper. They can also be found floating local waters while fly fishing for trout. In the winter Sarah likes to go snow shoeing, or skiing. She can also be found curled up by the fire with a good book or a classic "chick flick." She challenges anyone to beat her in a trivia contest involving "Pretty Woman" or "Dirty Dancing."
That's a little bit about Sarah, but mostly she's excited to get to know you. Please email her story ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also keep tabs on her work by liking her on Facebook or following her on Twitter @SarahABCFOXMT. She looks forward to hearing from you.
