Abbie Schrader joined the WTAP news team in October 2013 as the Weekend Weather Anchor and Weekday MMJ. In March 2015, she became Daybreak Anchor.
Originally from the small town of LaGrange, Ohio, Abbie attended Cleveland State University where she graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Digital Media. She also attended the Ohio Center for Broadcasting.
During those times, she interned at many of the television and radio stations in the Cleveland area. While interning at WOIO in Cleveland, she was hired as a production assistant.
Abbie has always wanted to work in news since she was a little girl when instead of watching cartoons like most kids, she chose to watch the local news.
She's a huge fan of all Cleveland sports teams and is still holding out hope for that long awaited championship. Abbie is also a huge animal lover and pop culture junkie.
Abbie is excited to be close to home while being able to report for the Mid-Ohio Valley.
Abbie Schrader left WTAP in March 2016. She's now a weekday reporter/weekend anchor at WKBN in Youngstown, Ohio. She then went to Fox 8 News in Cleveland, Ohio.
