Wilmington, NC

Gabbie joined the WECT team in May 2017. Starting out as a part-time associate producer, Gabbie is now one of WECT’s general assignment reporters and the weekend morning anchor. She puts her heart into every story she tells, but really loves a good consumer/health & wellness piece!

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 with a minor in Graphic Design. There, she was a news reporter and on-air personality for the school’s radio station. Before her move to Wilmington, Gabbie worked at WECT’s sister station in Charlotte, WBTV, as an editor and producer.

When Gabbie is not working, she’s looking for new restaurants to try with her husband, taking her dog Edgar on adventures, or traveling somewhere with a great view. She also enjoys a good mystery book, working out, and trying new recipes.
