Evan Abramson joined the KFDA News Channel 10 team in July of 2019 as the weekend sports anchor/reporter.
Evan graduated from the University of Central Florida in May of 2019 (Go Knights!) and is originally from Tampa, Florida. And yes, UCF is the 2017 CFB Co-National Champions. Aside from cheering on the Knights, Evan is unfortunately loyal to the New York Mets, Jets, Rangers and Knicks, and often finds himself questioning why he puts himself through so much suffering.
Before joining News Channel 10, Evan spent time in college freelancing for numerous publications such as the Tampa Bay Times, Orlando Sentinel and Sun Sentinel. He also spent time interning for Fox 35 and WKMG in Orlando, Florida, as well as interning in New York City for a summer at SportsNet New York covering all of the state’s professional sport teams. He also spent three years as a play-by-play broadcaster for UCF Men’s/Women’s Soccer and UCF Baseball for UCFKnights.TV.
Evan is excited to get to know the Amarillo area and to cover every sporting event he can get his camera to.
When Evan isn’t reporting on sports in an often corny and fun manner, he can be found yelling at the Mets and Jets on TV, attempting to play golf and finding new exciting recipes to cook up in his kitchen. He has an unhealthy obsession with Seinfeld, Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen, and is always trying to find the best Chinese food in town.
Suspected to go No. 6 or No. 7 in this year’s Major League Baseball draft, former Randall Raider and Arkansas Razorback outfielder Heston Kjerstad surprised many in the baseball world, selected second overall Wednesday night by the Baltimore Orioles.
