Abby Faulkner

Assistant News Director

UPDATE: Abby left KNSI Radio in March, 2014 to pursue a new career in Social Media.

I'm a reporter, anchor and photographer/videographer with experience covering every nook and cranny of central Minnesota.

I'm particularly interested in field reporting, business news, investigative journalism and feature writing.

I have a degree in English, which I earned in 2008 from Macalester College in St. Paul.

I was born in Chicago, but I'm a true Minnesotan; this is evidenced by my love of all things outdoors - hiking, skiing, camping, fishing, canoeing and snowshoeing...to name a few.

I also dig reading, singing in the car, making ridiculously complicated meals and cracking jokes.
