Abbie Boudreau's spirited and dynamic approach to story-telling has catapulted her career
to an all-time high. Boudreau's work is mostly featured on ABC's Good Morning America,
the number one rated morning show in the country. She was a part of the powerful GMA
team that made history in 2012, when they shattered their competition's 20-year winning
streak, and seized the top spot. You can also catch Boudreau on the web with her work for
Newsmakers on Yahoo! News.
Boudreau's whimsical and lighthearted feature reporting has made her an expert in all things
celebrity, health and beauty. She's tried everything from snake venom facials to hyperbaric
sleep chambers to give her millions of viewers a true glimpse into the very cool and cutting

Boudreau loves living in the land of movie stars and sunshine. In fact, living in California
has been a dream of hers since she was a little girl growing up in a small town in Illinois.

highly-acclaimed CNN documentary unit for three years.

who famously tried to persuade Boudreau onto his boat,
which was filled with sex toys and video cameras.
Anyway - long story...
In 2010, Boudreau won the prestigious Livingston
Award for Young Journalists for her tenacious reporting
on "Killings at the Canal: The Army Tapes." The
hour-long documentary aired both in the U.S. and
internationally. It exposed the extreme battleground
‘pressures soldiers were under to do the jobs of both
soldier and police officer. It also examined why a
group of young soldiers chose to take matters into their
own hands. The legendary Christiane Amanpour
presented Boudreau with the award, which turned out
to be a moment Boudreau says was a highlight in her
