Alert Center Anchor, Noon Anchor, WBTV News Now Anchor

Charlotte, NC

Abby Theodros joined the WBTV morning team March 2020 as the Alert Center anchor. You can watch her from 4:30 A.M. to 7 A.M. and again at noon. When not on air, she operates the WBTV News Now desk as an anchor for OTT and digital platforms.

Born and raised in Southern California, Abby is new to the South and looks forward to experiencing everything the Queen City has to offer.

She started her journalism career in Western Maryland as a reporter and fill-in anchor at WHAG-TV, now known as WDVM. During her two years in Frederick, Maryland, Abby covered several memorable events including gathering an exclusive interview with a woman who would eventually be convicted for her role in the killing of her toddler. The State’s Attorney’s office used Abby’s report in the closing arguments of the case.

In 2015, Abby made her way back west and spent four years in the Fabulous Las Vegas. She woke up her viewers every weekend on the morning show and spent weekdays reporting on stories that mattered to the community.

In her time out there, she covered a range of stories including the Raiders relocation from Oakland, California to Las Vegas, O.J. Simpson’s release and subsequent parole, and the Las Vegas mass shooting. She will never forget the lives lost on October 1, 2017 and continues to keep in touch with some of the families impacted by that tragedy.

Abby got her undergraduate degree in communication from the University of California, Santa Barbara. She got her master’s in journalism from Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism.

When Abby is not on-air, she loves to enjoy live music, experiment in the kitchen (it’s a work in progress), and spend time with her friends and family.

  • University of California, Santa Barbara - Undergraduate degree in Communications
