Gina Gannon
Gina Gannon joined the Action News team as a traffic reporter in December of 2016. Born and raised in Northeast Philadelphia, Gina is a proud Philly girl through and through.

Aside from her interim traffic duties at 6abc, she often hosts the ever-popular lifestyle show, "FYI Philly," where she presents the "In the Kitchen with Alessi" food segment. There, Gina opens viewers' eyes to one-of-a-kind recipes, from family-focused dinners to delectable date nights.

Like so many people in the Greater Philadelphia Region, Gina grew up watching 6abc. This full-circle career opportunity allows her to represent the station she always admired as a young, aspiring TV personality.

Gina caught the TV bug early in life and started anchoring entertainment segments for her grade school's news program. From there, she knew it was the only path she wished to pursue. When the time came for Gina to apply to college, Temple University was the clear choice, due to the school's exceptional Communications Program. Gina received her Bachelor's Degree in Communications and proudly exudes her "Temple Made" mentality wherever she goes.

After graduation, she worked as a local traffic reporter for a cable station in Malvern. She also began working on-air at QVC.


When she isn't on-air, or working the event circuit, you can find Gina hosting events near and dear to her heart. Gina is on the Board of Directors for Mums and Mutts, an animal advocacy non-profit. Being an avid animal lover, Gina was drawn to this specific organization as it aids in providing funding, marketing, and social media to help local shelter animals find forever homes. With this sentiment in mind, you will undoubtedly hear Gina gushing over her Yorkshire Terrier fur-babies, Mia and Coco.
