Shirleen Allicot is the co-anchor of Action News at 4pm and Action News at 10 on PHL-17. Shirleen joined the Action News team in May 2010. Before arriving in Philly, Shirleen was an anchor/reporter for News 12 Connecticut. There she covered everything from breaking news to politics, and proudly scored several exclusive interviews.

Shirleen began her career with News 12 Networks in one of New York's toughest boroughs, the Bronx. There, she shot, wrote, and edited her own stories, and anchored the weekday morning newscasts. During her time in the "boogie down," Shirleen covered several top stories, but the one that left the biggest impact was when she interviewed a mother with AIDS, and her remarkable 7-year-old son who was HIV positive.

A Queens, New York native, Shirleen graduated from Hofstra University with a B.A. in Broadcast Journalism.

In her spare time, Shirleen enjoys testing her skills in the kitchen, traveling to exotic places, and spending time with her very large family.
