Abigail Bleck began working as a general assignment reporter at NewsChannel 13 in the Fall of 2004. Since then she was part of WNYT's team coverage that was first on the air with the verdict in the Christopher Porco murder trial. Abby was also at the Capitol the day former Gov. George Pataki announced that he would not seek re-election. But she's most proud of the in-depth reports she prepared for the station--one on the dangers of "day after" DUI and a second that alerted parents to the fact that children often sleep through ringing smoke alarms.
Prior to WNYT, Abby reported for WINK in Fort Myers, Florida. There, she covered the devastation left behind by Hurricanes Charley and Frances. She also worked as an anchor/reporter in Topeka, Kansas and off-air at WSTM in Syracuse.
Abigail grew up in New Jersey and is a graduate of Syracuse University's Newhouse School of Public Communications. Living just two and a half hours from her alma mater means frequent trips back to the Dome and hopefully a repeat of the 2003 Basketball season.
Abigail currently serves as a board member for the Albany YMCA, participates in her neighborhood's Walk-n-Watch program and helps fundraise for a local, non-profit health care provider. She considers herself "conversationally" fluent in Spanish and lives in Albany with her husband and two cats.
