WPXI vice president and general manager Ray Carter confirmed Abney’s departure, telling TVSpy, “She was a real spark plug in our newsroom. We’ll miss her energy and professionalism.”
According to a TVEyes search, Abney was last on-air Tuesday, June 25. There’s no word on where Abney is headed. She had been with the station for almost five years and had also worked in Mobile, AL, and Wilmington, NC.
“Behind the scenes, she made everyone feel a part of the morning team,” news director Mike Oliveira told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “We wish her nothing but the best going forward.”
