WTXF’s Kacie McDonnell: The ‘Little Sister’ of ‘Good Day Philadelphia’

Kacie McDonnell, the morning traffic reporter on Philadelphia Fox O&O WTXF, talks to the Philadelphia Daily News about her career. Despite WTXF being her first job in television, McDonnell said she has been “accepted with open arms” by the “Good Day Philadelphia” team:

She said that her lack of experience has never been an issue with the “Good Day” team headed up by anchors Sheinelle Jones, Mike Jerrick and Karen Hepp.

“There has not been an ounce of any bad feelings or ill will, not at all,” she said. “They accepted me with open arms. I’m kind of like the little sister of the group. We’re totally a family.

“Definitely, there was something to prove, being right out of college, but I think slowly, and with the help of everyone at the station – on air and behind the scenes – I’m starting to figure out who I am on a professional level.”

Mark Wahlberg Does Weather and Traffic Update on WTXF

Mark Wahlberg and Allen Hughes, the star and director of the new movie, “Broken City,” gave WTXF viewers more than just the typical interview while on “Good Day Philadelphia.”  You can watch the video after the jump.

The two stuck around long enough to deliver a chaotic 7 day forecast with Wahlberg directing the action while Hughes stumbled around the map. “Come on Allen. Get with it,” said Wahlberg who showed seconds of brilliance with the help of regular meteorologist Sue Serio.

Wahlberg then extended the bit into the traffic report, with Kacie McDonnell moving him where he needed to be before he tossed to reporter Jennaphr Frederick in the field by saying, “And Jen, [we] toss it back to you and don’t act like you’re working out,” he said referencing an earlier segment where Frederick was rolling out on a piece of equipment. “If you’re going to work out, do it.”
