Abigail Hantke

Abigail is waking up with the Chippewa Valley community on Hello Wisconsin!

She started her career at WEAU 13 News in July of 2015 as a multi-media journalist, taking on new roles over the years as the weekend anchor, and today, co-anchoring with Tyler Mickelson.

She grew up on a dairy farm in Orfordville, Wisconsin and was very involved in 4-H and FFA. Abigail graduated from UW-Whitewater in 2015 with a degree in broadcast, print, web journalism and a minor in public relations.

During her time at the university, she worked for the campus television station, UWW-TV, and interned at 105.9 FM and AM 1380 in Janesville. Abigail also briefly interned at WMTV in Madison, before joining the WEAU 13 News team.

In her free time, you can find Abigail outdoors, especially on the sand volleyball court. She really enjoys playing sports or just being outside in general. She’s also known around the newsroom for her sense of humor or “Abby jokes.”

She is excited to continue living in the Eau Claire area and wake up with the community.
