Abby Ham Interview

I am so happy to wake you up every morning on 10News Today and Mornings with Fox43! I am originally from the south and am so happy to be home right where I belong. I am a proud graduate of the University of Arizona’s journalism program. I started my career in Parkersburg, West Virginia/Marietta, Ohio, as anchor and producer of the 5:00 show at WTAP. After a year, I was promoted to evening anchor and 11:00 producer.

WTAP was the very best place to begin my journalism career. While there, I learned to shoot and edit video, report, anchor and produce. I was also very involved with the 2004 presidential election between Former President George W. Bush and Senator John Kerry. I even got the opportunity to interview then-Democratic Vice Presidential candidate John Edwards. While there, I won several Associated Press awards for anchoring and reporting.

I was with WTAP for more than two years and then moved here to Knoxville to become weekend anchor/reporter for WBIR. After a few months, I became the morning anchor on 10News Today. I reported on various stories, including the fire at the McClung Warehouses. The coverage was nominated for a regional Emmy.

In 2007, I had the opportunity to anchor the morning newscast in Cleveland, Ohio. While I was sad to leave, I was excited for the opportunity at WKYC. While in Cleveland, I got to report on the 2008 presidential election, more specifically the Cleveland debate between 2008 Democratic Presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. I also volunteered with special organizations, like the JDRF, The Ronald McDonald House, and Dress for Success.

In 2009, it was time to come home. I missed my family and this beautiful area and could not wait to return. WBIR was kind enough to give me my old job back and again I sit at the anchor desk for 10News Today.
