Abbey Niezgoda gets up every morning before the sun comes up to bring you the news on NBC Connecticut Today. She enjoys meeting new people, telling meaningful stories and having a few cups of coffee in between!
Before calling Connecticut home, she was reporting just over the border in Rhode Island at ABC6. Since then, she's covered everything from the Boston Marathon bombings to the Blizzard of 2013 to the arrest of Aaron Hernandez.
When Abbey isn’t chasing breaking news, she loves getting the chance to tell inspiring stories. One of the memorable moments was watching a 12 year old paralyzed gymnast stand up for the first time, after suffering from a mysterious illness. Abbey will also never forget sitting down with Kaitlin Roig-DeBellis, a Sandy Hook teacher now on a mission to spread kindness to children across the globe.
Abbey is no stranger to New England, having attended Emerson College in Boston. When she’s not reporting, you can find her checking out a new restaurant or looking for the best yoga class in town.
