Pittsburgh native Heather Abraham joined KDKA in December 2010.

Before moving back home, she reported at News 12 Brooklyn, a 24-hour cable news station in New York City. Heather spent four years covering everything Brooklyn: culture, politics, crime, and neighborhood news. She also occasionally filled in on the anchor desk.

Heather grew up in Shaler and graduated from Shaler Area High School. Her desire to get into news started there with the morning announcements. She continued her education at West Virginia University where she studied Broadcast News, learning the ins and outs of shooting video, editing and presenting news. Heather was also a co-anchor and reporter for WVU News, the school’s weekly news show.

While her career took her to New York City, Heather has always wanted to make Pittsburgh her home again. She is thrilled to be back in the ‘Burgh and excited to be a part of the KDKA family.

When she’s not reporting, Heather loves trying new restaurants, going to the movies and playing with her two dogs.
