Gabrielle joined the WALB team in January 2021 as the Senior Multimedia Journalist. She’ll be primarily covering the City of Albany, and Dougherty, Coffee and Crisp counties, but will cover other areas when the story leads her there! Gabrielle grew up just outside Chicago in the northern Illinois and Indiana suburbs. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Auburn University in Mass Communication: Radio, Television and Film — War Eagle! After completing a video production internship with the Atlanta Hawks, she took her first TV job as an MMJ and Weekend Anchor at KBJR 6 in Duluth, Minn (Brrr!). After that, she hopped over to radio to report for an NPR member station in Savannah. Gabrielle also spent some time as a public information officer. In her last role, she anchored a news program for iHeartMedia based in Atlanta, but knew she needed to come back to her first love — TV. Gabrielle loves exploring new places with her Pomeranian Blue and discovering new restaurants. She says she can’t wait to cover all of the interesting stories she knows the Albany area has to offer. She loves good investigative and research-driven pieces, so make sure to shoot her some tips.
