Becky Worley

Blondes are not traditionally asked to explain the use of nano-photolithography in computer processors.  

Becky Worley is trying to change that. 

Worley has been a tech reporter/producer since 1998.  She is currently the technology contributor for ABC’s Good Morning America and a blogger/columnist for Yahoo! Tech. Her goal is to bring information about technology to as many people as possible, she says “Technology is becoming a lifestyle issue. It’s more than gadgets, more than computer viruses; it’s become a part of our everyday lives.”

Becky also dabbles in other science and tech related television jobs.  She is currently host of a series on the Travel Channel entitled Best Places to Find Cash and Treasures.  This modern day adventure show digs deep into paleontology, geology, and gemology. But her part in the show has more to do with elbow grease than serious science, "I think I got the job because I showed up at the audition with a pickax. Nobody else brought their own tools."

For Worley, the 'not-so-glamorous' side of television is nothing new. Prior to Best Places to Find Cash and Treasures she hosted a show on the National Geographic channel about industrial design that had her welding, grinding and sawing her way to on-screen filth.

Becky started her TV career fresh out of college, working in news for Seattle 's KOMO-TV. As the tech world began to explode, Worley left television news to consult on web design and IT implementation for small businesses.  In 1998, the creation of an all technology network called ZDTV pulled her back into television.

During her 6 years at ZDTV /TechTV, Worley produced 3 different shows, hosted a live, hour-long computer help call-in show, and when TechTV created an 8 hour technology news format, Worley was tapped as an anchor.

Worley has a master's degree from Stanford University . She graduated through a program called "Learning, Design, and Technology" that focuses on Computer Science and Education.

She is the author of "Security Alert: Stories of Real People Protecting themselves from Viruses, Identity Theft, and Scams."
Worley was raised on the island of Maui , attended Middlebury College in Vermont , and currently resides in the San Francisco Bay Area. In her spare time she plays the ukulele and fly-fishes.
