Shellye Leggett is a reporter at KTVM in Bozeman for NBC Montana. Shellye comes to Montana from the very Windy City, Chicago, where she earned her Master's in Journalism at DePaul University. Shellye is originally from Las Vegas, NV (yes, she loves the outrageously hot summers!)

During her time at DePaul, Shellye was a multimedia journalist and anchor for DePaul's weekly student run news broadcast, "Good Day DePaul." She also interned for the Chicago based morning show, WCIU, You and Me This Morning, the summer of 2013.

Before receiving her Master’s, Shellye graduated from North Park University in Chicago. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies. While at North Park, Shellye was on both the Lady Vikings Softball and Women's Track and Field teams and was named to the Academic All-American list in 2011 and 2012.

When Shellye isn't working hard in the newsroom, she loves to workout, be active and also spend time with her friends and family. Shellye is very excited to start her Reporting Career in beautiful Montana and is excited to engage with the community!
