Tori Bender recently graduated from the University of California, in Santa Barbara with a Bachelor's Degree in Communication. The day she graduated she packed her bags and made her way to Montana to start her news career as our evening anchor.
This, however, was not the beginning of her days in news. Her father, Dave Bender, has been a weather man in the industry well before she was even born. She grew up at his station surrounded by journalists which gave her an inside look at the business from a very young age.
While in college, Tori had her first two internships, one with CBS 13 Sacramento and another with Good Day Sacramento. There, she was able to really hone her craft and get ready for her career.
Thrilled to be a resident of Great Falls, Tori is so excited to continue the KFBB tradition of, "covering your community." Feel free to email her any time. She would love to hear from you!
