Erin O'Hearn
Erin O'Hearn joined the Action News team in January of 2006. Since that time, Erin has spent time both in the field and on the anchor desk.

Among the highlights of her time with 6ABC was traveling to Egypt to prepare for the King Tut exhibit at the Franklin Institute. She also visited Los Angeles several times to cover the lighter side of news with updates on Dancing with the Stars and other ABC shows. In 2016, Erin was the only on-air journalist to go live from St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, as Pope Francis delivered a mass and was serenaded before his departure from Philadelphia.

Before arriving in the city of Brotherly Love, she worked for 6abc's sister station, WTVD, the ABC-owned station in Durham, North Carolina. There, she covered everything from breaking news to UNC pep rallies, to hurricanes ripping through the Tar Heel State.

Erin also has a strong background covering politics, as she began her broadcasting career at Capital News 9 in her hometown of Albany, New York. Before diving into news, Erin spent time producing episodes of an MTV documentary called True Life. While working for MTV, Erin spent most of her time in New York City, but also traveled all over the country, following teens and young adults as they grappled with issues like bipolar disorder and drug addiction.

Erin graduated from Cornell University with a Bachelor of Science. She was a member of Pi Beta Phi Sorority and the Ivory Tower Honor Society. Erin serves on the board of Montgomery Child Advocacy Project. She also donates her time to the foundation, Help Us Adopt. Erin enjoys yoga, running and traveling, but her true joy comes from spending time with her husband and three amazing children who love playing soccer, lacrosse and basketball and cheering on the Philadelphia 76ers and the Eagles.
