Early Life and Education
Very little is known about Abby’s family and childhood. Growing up, she showed a strong inclination towards sports and played a lot of sports alongside her two sisters, enjoying gymnastics, snowboarding, skiing, and even soccer, joining her school’s soccer team. She was also very active when it came to gymnastics, as well as track & field.
After matriculating from high school, she enrolled at the University of Colorado, Boulder which is the flagship university of the University of Colorado system, known for numerous high profile graduates and for its success in terms of sports. The university competes in 17 varsity sports and is a member of the NCAA Division 1. The school felt like a natural fit for Abby, though she didn’t really pursue sports heavily as she did in her youth. Instead, she took up a course in broadcasting, hoping to gain a future career in the field, despite not being an actual athlete.
During Chin’s time in Colorado, she had her first broadcasting experience when she worked for UPN 20 Denver as a sideline reporter. The Denver based television station holds broadcast rights to National Football League (NFL) exhibition games which feature the local team, the Denver Broncos, and was also the local broadcast home of the National Basketball Association (NBA) team, the Denver Nuggets. Other teams it has broadcast include the National Hockey League (NHL) team the Colorado Avalanche, and the Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise, the Colorado Rockies.
Aside from her work there, she also interned at the newspaper called The Coloradoan, a daily newspaper based in Fort Collins. The newspaper has a strong online presence through a website updated throughout the day, featuring news from Northern Colorado. She also worked for the AM radio station KOA which focuses on a news and talk radio format, and is nicknamed the Blowtorch of the West. Another radio station she worked for was the AM KDSP, which is known as The Voice of Broncos Country. The station is primarily covering the Denver Broncos and the University of Colorado basketball games.
Work With CSNNE
In 2013, Abby began working with CSNNE, also known as NBC Sports Boston, which is a regional sports network based in Burlington, Massachusetts, and responsible for coverage of professional sports throughout New England, with a focus on Boston area teams, featuring magazine and entertainment programs. They also offer analysis programs and is available throughout cable providers in the area. She initially joined the network as a Chevrolet SportsNet Central reporter and anchor, but a year later she began covering the NBA team, the Boston Celtics as a sideline reporter.
Her experience with the NBA led her to the job, as she had previously reported live on the Portland Trail Blazers, and she’d also had experience covering Pac-12 football for another station. In 2018, she made her Winter Olympics debut as a part of NBC team, where she reported on the ski jumping event. She continues to work as a Boston Celtics sideline reporter during the regular season, and has also worked with other NBC affiliates, and done production work in other programs, often travelling to other areas of the country to cover sports events.
