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.”
