Grant Becker joined the sports team at CBS2/FOX28 in October of 2018. Before heading up to Cedar Rapids, Grant spent a year working for KTVO in the station's Ottumwa, IA bureau.
Grant is a graduate of Marquette University. He took advantage of opportunities in student media at Marquette by working as the Sports Director at MUTV and as the Assistant Sports Editor at the Marquette Wire. In addition to student media work he worked on two documentary projects and interned in the sports departments at WISN 12 in Milwaukee and KEYC-TV in Mankato, MN.
Grant grew up in Fairmont, MN so he isn't far from home here in Cedar Rapids. In high school he played soccer, hockey and tennis but also enjoys a game of pick up basketball and a round of golf as well. Grant is a lifelong fan of Minnesota's sports teams. Joining a sports team where he's outnumber 2-to-1 by Packers fans has only strengthened his Viking pride.
