Gabrielle Williams

Traffic Reporter/Producer

Wilmington, NC

Gabbie joined the WECT team in May 2017. Starting out as an Associate Producer for the evening shows, Gabbie now produces and reports traffic for Carolina in the Morning every weekday. Before her move to Wilmington, Gabbie worked at WBTV in Charlotte where she worked as an editor, then making her way up as a producer for the morning shows there.

A native North Carolinian, Gabbie grew up in Greensboro where she lived next door to a morning news anchor for most of her life. That’s where her passion for news took off. She graduated from Appalachian State University in May 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in Electronic Media/Broadcasting and a minor in Graphic Design.

When Gabbie is not writing scripts, she’s going to the park with her dog Edgar, shopping for home decor, or traveling somewhere with a great view!

In her spare time, she’s reading, working out, or trying out a new recipe.

Gabbie is thrilled to be in the port city and getting the chance to tell your story. If you see her out, say hello!
