My name is Abbie McIntosh and I’m a college multimedia journalist and producer. I believe news is the first draft of history and it’s my job to get that draft out to people in a timely, ethical, truthful and sometimes interactive and visual manner.
My roots run deep into the heart of Texas, but I’m currently earning my Bachelor of Arts in broadcast journalism with a minor in political science from The University of Mississippi, popularly known as Ole Miss. I’m currently Station Manager for the award-winning NewsWatch Ole Miss, Ole Miss’ daily, all student-run live 30-minute newscast. My responsibilities include choosing stories, writing scripts and running technical equipment, along with managing a nearly 40 student member team of permanent staff and on-air talent just to name a few. I’ve served multiple positions during my time with NewsWatch Ole Miss, and I’ve also written for the award-winning The Daily Mississippian newspaper.
This summer, I was a news intern with KDFW Fox 4 Dallas. I learned and grew so much as a multimedia journalist and producer. Be sure to give @fox4interns a follow on Instagram for a more in-depth look at my adventures and reporting!
When I’m out of the newsroom, I’m usually cuddled up in bed with my latest book obsession, catching up on sleep or working on my next story. Upon graduation, I am looking to enter the world of producing.
Please note that I am currently in the middle of editing my portfolio. Pages may not be consistent with others. I am working on making my portfolio more cohesive. I apologize if this causes any inconvenience. Thank you!
