Philadelphia Sports Anchor Jamie Apody Leaves WPVI

By Kevin Eck 

Jamie Apody is leaving Philadelphia ABC owned station WPVI after 18 years there. She’s been off the air since October.

“As you have probably all already figured out, after 18 years, it is with incredible mixed emotions that I can now make official that my time at 6abc has come to an end. It’s profoundly bittersweet,” Apody wrote on social media. “I’m not sure what’s next for me professionally. Anyone who knows me knows I’m a gamer and can’t handle sitting the bench for too long. BUT… I promise WHATEVER my future holds, YOU will always be a part of it.”

Apody joined the station in 2006.


According to Crossing Broad, her departure may have had something to do with her credential use, saying “the Phillies public relations staff was not happy with Apody bringing her children to Citizens Bank Park.”

At one point, a source said, the kids were running around on the field, not during a game, but around the time that an Action News live shot was taking place. We were also told that some player requests were not television-related, and therefore seen as falling outside the scope of typical field work. The general theme, as explained to us, was that Apody was loose with media rules and took liberties while working, which continued despite warnings.”
