KOOP 91.7 FM

Hi, I'm Abigail Mahnke. I was born and raised in Boston, but have lived in Austin, Texas since 2004. My passion lies in interviewing people and learning about their wild and crazy stories. I love learning the nitty gritty of people's lives—both what they do and why they do it. Having a radio interview show is my way of satisfying that passion and sharing it with others.

I currently host Inner Views on KOOP Radio 91.7 FM, a wonderful community-run station providing music and content that you will not find elsewhere on the Austin dial.

Prior to KOOP, I did a year-long internship at WAMC, an NPR affiliate in Albany, NY, where I produced a number of pieces relating to education. In addition, I spent some time doing news and news magazine shows on KALX in Berkeley, CA.


Show engineer, Lisa Scheps. Lisa is also the host of Off the Stage and On the Air, which focuses on Austin's theater scene. It can be heard Mondays, 1:00-1:30pm Central Time on KOOP 91.7 FM or else streaming online at

Lisa was also a guest on Inner Views on June 17, 2009. You can hear that interview here.
