Abigail joined the KXAN digital team in July of 2022. Before moving to Austin, she worked as a digital producer for Nexstar station KLFY in Lafayette, Louisiana. However, she has previously lived in Kyle, Texas, as well as five other states in the Southeast.
While at KLFY, she worked on digital coverage of a tragedy that struck Louisiana when an oil liftboat, the Seacor Power, capsized in the Gulf of Mexico off Louisiana’s coast with 19 men on board, many of them were from the Lafayette area. Only six of the crewmembers came home. Coverage extended beyond a year in the aftermath of the tragedy, which included backlash to the Coast Guard’s response, grassroots search efforts, and family responses.
Abigail enjoys concerts, arts and entertainment, skating, baking, and hanging out with her pets (a black lab named Leo and two cats – Ramona and Roux).
She was also a part of Nexstar’s first Digital Leadership Development class.
