The Women of 6abc Get Real with Andie Summers
Anyone can ask these strong, talented women about their new show. Only Andie would ask these questions. Listen as the women of 6abc get real with our own Andie Summers:
ABC announced some changes to their daytime line-up last week, and the changes took place today. A new all-female newscast will slide into the 10 o’clock spot. Tamron Hall, who saw major success at that time, moves to 2 pm.
Other markets seeing changes are ABC7 in New York and ABC11 in Raleigh-Durham.
The new Philly news team at 10 includes anchors Alicia Vitarelli (who we learned loves to dance!), Alyana Gomez, and Nydia Han. Our good friend (and huge country music fan) meteorologist Karen Rogers expands her duties to join the team with AccuWeather forecasts.
About the Hosts:
Karen Rogers has been with 6abc since 1996. She grew up in New Jersey and grew up watching 6abc. Karen graduated with honors from Rutgers University in South Brunswick. She was her class valedictorian and spoke at commencement. Karen is listed in “Who’s Who Among American Colleges and Universities.”
Nydia Han is 6abc’s go-to for just about everything. She is the Consumer Investigative Reporter, Troubleshooter, and co-anchor of Action News Sunday mornings, and most recently, Action News at 10 A.M. Nydia created the documentary series, #ThisIsAmerica which gives a provocative, fresh look at who we are as Americans.
Alicia Vitarelli joined the Action News team in October 2010. Since then she traveled to cover the Royal Wedding, the beatification of Pope John Paul II at the Vatican, the Oscars, the CMA Awards, and Dancing with the Stars. Even though she interviewed many Hollywood A-listers for her daily segments on Action News, Alicia admits to being a little star-struck while interviewing Tom Hanks. One of the things Alicia loves about working at 6abc is the Action News Big Board. She is able to incorporate social media into her newscast making viewers part of the conversation, and part of the storytelling.
Alyana Gomez is the newest member of the 6abc team joining Action News in February 2022. She was born in Philadelphia and raised in Collingswood, New Jersey. She is one of us and excited to share the desk with this amazing team of women.
