WPVI Anchor Explains Absence From Station

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel Comment

WPVI anchor Alicia Vitarelli is back on Philadelphia news after a hiatus.

Viewers started to wonder what happened after a social media post back in February. She was experiencing dizzy spells after she hit her head. Yesterday, she explained her diagnosis.

“SO many of you have been so incredible – reaching out, sending love, offering good vibes and prayers, advice and help. I want you to know that I read every message. I see you, I hear you and I am incredibly grateful. Beyond words. I’ve always heard the old adage: “Your Health is Your Wealth.” I have never felt as close to it or as passionate about it as I do now. For the past few months, I have been on a very exhausting, emotional and oftentimes painful journey to find out **what was happening to me. To make a long story short — I was stuck somewhere between a concussion and extremely severe Eusatchian tube dysfunction,” she said on Instagram.

Vitarelli anchors the station’s 4 p.m. newscast.

Hi : ) Checking in today from my desk at 6abc Action News​. Well, this has been quite a journey. I want to start by saying THANK YOU. SO many of you have been so incredible – reaching out, sending love, offering good vibes and prayers, advice and help. I want you to know that I read every message. I see you, I hear you and I am incredibly grateful. Beyond words. I’ve always heard the old adage: “Your Health is Your Wealth.” I have never felt as close to it or as passionate about it as I do now. For the past few months, I have been on a very exhausting, emotional and oftentimes painful journey to find out **what was happening to me. To make a long story short — I was stuck somewhere between a concussion and extremely severe Eusatchian tube dysfunction. Many weeks later, I have answers and treatment. I am so grateful for the gift of time, the gift of support and the power of patience. “Listen to the whispers,” said @hallythrives (an amazing human I am so blessed to know). “When we don’t listen closely, those whispers become a roar.” The roars, she says, become so loud that they send us into crisis mode. This advice struck me. I am listening now. I really am ❤️
