Bob Brooks joined the 6abc Action News team in July, 2016. Before arriving in Philadelphia, he worked at WTVJ in Miami, Florida.

Bob is originally from the Pittsburgh area and is thrilled to be back in Pennsylvania. Prior to his time in the Sunshine State, Bob worked as an anchor and reporter at WETM-TV in Elmira, N.Y.

A proud Nittany Lion, Bob graduated from Penn State's College of Communications with a bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism. There, he received national recognition in the Hearst Journalism Awards Program for his report on the potential impact Marcellus Shale gas drilling could have on central Pennsylvania's world class trout fishing. He is also a proud alum of Penn State's award winning student run newscast "Centre County Report." While in college, Bob had the opportunity to intern in New York City with the show 48 Hours Mystery.
