The Andie Summers Show

Weekdays 5:30AM-10AM

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

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

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.

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.

5 Positive Eagles Takeaways From Week 1

5 Positive Eagles Takeaways From Week 1!

The Eagles kicked off the 2023 season yesterday against the New England Patriots.  It was odd to me that the Super Bowl runner-up was playing an away game for their first game but oh well. Last season ended in heartbreak as the Kansas City Chiefs beat our beloved Birds to win the Lombardi Trophy. This season, it’s an Eagles revenge tour.

As a die-hard Eagles fan for as long as I can remember, I have seen many ups and downs.  Losing last year’s Super Bowl was a top 5 heartbreak moment in my Eagles fandom career. Us Eagles fans always focus on a lot of the negative things… The reason is because we have had our hearts broken so many times in the past.  From losing the Super Bowl in 1980 to the 3 straight NFC Championship losses…(I am still not over losing to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or the Carolina Panthers in the NFC Championship. We could have definitely beaten the Oakland Raiders in the Super Bowl in 2002/2003.) Losing to the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC Championship while being favorites was also tough.  But then we have 2017 which made all of those previous wounds immediately heal.

Doesn’t it feel good to have a Super Bowl championship under our belts?  Now, we can stop hearing Cowboys fans, Washington fans, and Giant fans saying we are ringless!

Moving forward… The Eagles are favored to win the NFC this year and head back to the Super Bowl. The offense will look basically the same even though we have a new offensive coordinator.  We lost a starting O-Lineman to free agency and our running back room is completely different but other than that, it’s the same.

The defense on the other hand will look different.  Our young guys need to step up this year (especially at the linebacker position) and our safeties need to play above their potential.  We have a new defensive coordinator as well but I don’t see a ton of change in scheme this year.

I am going to put together the 5 positive Eagles takeaways each week.  I will not focus on the negative because you can get that stuff everywhere else.

Let’s stay positive here!

  • Darius Slay

    He is called Big Play Slay for a reason. The guy seems to be in the right place at the right time.  He took an interception back 70 yards for the first Eagles score of the season.

  • Jalen Carter

    Jalen Carter is everything we thought he would be and more. He is just a force at the Defensive Tackle position.  He was moving the Pats O-line at will and even got his first career sack.

  • Jordan Davis

    Last year, first-round pick Jordan Davis was not very good.  Well, I can’t say that… He didn’t stand out and was injured for a while.

    He looked pretty darn good yesterday lining up next to Fletcher Cox for most of the game.  Not many teams will be able to run against the Eagles when he is out there.

  • Kenny Gainwell

    It looks like Gainwell will take over as the workhorse back for the Eagles after Miles Sanders’s departure.  He seemed to be under control and was definitely the primary focus in the 1st quarter.  I would love to see more of D’Andre Swift though.  One carry is not enough.

  • A Win Is A Win

    Was it pretty, no?  The first quarter was very good.  The 2nd quarter was not so good.  The 2nd half was a little better.

    All in all, it was game 1 of 17 games.  It was an away game with lots of rain… The offense did not play in the pre-season… and THEY WON!

    They are 1-0.  Moving on to Minnesota this Thursday at home.  Let’s go Birds!

Love you, love your show!
