Hi There!

If Rick Redding’s Little Bo Peep, I’m quickly becoming one of his sheep.  After writing under his tutelage at another online organization he’s enticed me to come back for more. I am pretty sure it’s the large paycheck that lured me.  For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Abby Miller, the former WLKY Morning Show Anchor.  I was proud to be a member of a fabulous morning show team that netted the only First Place distinction in that time slot in the station’s history.  It’s a feat that’s not been repeated since I left in September 2008.  I’ve been blessed to be contacted on facebook by a lot of fans who watched me for nearly a decade on WLKY and I’m flattered by anyone who says they “remember me when.”

My life’s changed significantly since my days in television.  After being demoted to weekend mornings, I opted to leave WLKY.  My husband works in Cincinnati, and I only see my step kids on the weekends, so working the weekends was untenable, not to mention it wasn’t what I was assured of when I signed a new contract with WLKY just a few months before.  It was the hardest decision i’ve ever made.  But in retrospect, it was the only option available to me and while I miss television, I’ve turned down offers to go back.

Just 2 months after I left WLKY I found out I was pregnant….something my husband and I had been trying for for several years.  Shortly thereafter my husband and I found out we were having twins. TWINS!  July 13, 2009 I gave birth to Luke and Max, the joys of my life.  The boys are now 18 months old and  I am a full-time mom.  The boys’ antics provide me with daily material for the blogosphere.  I have my own blogging site and now I’m here as well.  I plan to bug our fearless leader Rick to provide a “Family” category on this site, as the current options don’t provide a good fit for my posts.

I hope you’ll check in with me, read my posts, and provide feedback.  If there’s a topic on family life you’d like addressed, let me know and I will do my best.

  1. Great to have you aboard, Abby. And we will start think about a new category for you. Love the pic.

  2. Abby, not sure you remember me. I used to hang out next door with your neighbor, Ann. You moved. So did she. Now here we are in the blogosphere. I’m a twin! I have a twin sister. Of course, we’re not identical! We are best friends. That happens when you’re womb mates. Glad to find you’re doing well. Best to your hubby! – Kirk

    • Yes Kirk, of course I remember you! so good to reconnect. I remember you saying you were a twin…wow it’s been a wild ride so far but I wouldn’t change it for the world. Hope you’re doing well!

  3. Congrats on the twins! Your career as a Mama right now is going to bring in more reward than ever. I do miss you on TV but glad to hear your update and see your presence on LouisvilleKY.com!

    • Thanks Cindy, the twins are just the best little things ever. I miss television as well but I’m a firm believer in following God’s plan and while I never would have left WLKY had they kept up their end of the deal, I’m at peace with leaving. It’s the only peace I find raising twin tornados lol!

  4. Hey Abby! Welcome to the team! I’m glad to hear you’re doing well, I remember watching you on WLKY, and I wondered where you went. I look forward to reading your posts!
