Abby Eden

Anchor/Reporter

Abby Eden co-anchors the 10 p.m. news with Phil Witt. Abby joined FOX 4 in December of 2010 as a Video journalist. She comes back to the Midwest from Tyler, Texas. She spent nearly three and a half years there enjoying the warm winters and working as an anchor and reporter for the FOX and NBC affiliates. She was also an anchor for the NBC station in Baton Rouge during her time in Texas, as her station was sort of a "news hub" for many other cities.

While working in Texas, Abby got to experience two hurricanes- Gustav and Alex. She traveled hundreds of miles into the storm while everyone else was evacuating. Abby won several awards for her work in the hurricanes and beyond. She was nominated for a regional Emmy for "Best General Assignment Reporter," she won an EMMA for best feature, a Barbara Jordan Media Award from the Texas Governor's office for her work on stories regarding people with disabilities, and several other honorable mentions from the EMMA and Texas Associated Press Broadcasters Associations.

Abby is originally from Omaha, Nebraska. She moved from the Cornhusker State to Columbia, Missouri to attend the University of Missouri. Abby graduated with a bachelor's degree in Radio/Television Journalism, minoring in Spanish. While in school, she studied abroad in the vibrant city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. She also worked at KOMU, an NBC affiliate, as an anchor and reporter.

Abby is a dedicated runner, a television buff, a cookie and pizza connoisseur, an avid pageant watcher (former participant), and a mystery/horror book fanatic. When she's not at work, she's probably running around (literally), visiting her family, or enjoying one of the many restaurants Kansas City has to offer.

When she's at work, Abby's always looking for her next story. If you have one, be it heartwarming, terrifying, exciting, let her know by sending an email to abigail.eden@wdaftv4.com.
