6 ABC (WPVI-TV) has a new personality with some local roots to Southeastern Pennsylvania.

So it'll be a bit of a homecoming when Caroline Coggin hits the airwaves later this summer in Philadelphia.

Coggin, a West Chester native, confirmed the news on her personal Instagram account late last week that she has accepted a position as an "anchor/reporter" for 6 ABC.

Coggin will be coming to Philadelphia after working at WHDH-TV in Boston for three years. Prior to that, she worked in Providence, RI, and Binghamton, NY, according to her biography on WHDH's website.

"I grew up watching Channel 6. This powerhouse station is one of the main reasons I wanted to become a journalist," she wrote on Instagram. "As I started my first job in Binghamton, and I found myself traveling home to see my family every weekend, I knew my ultimate goal was to work in Philly."

It's unclear exactly when Coggin will start on the air on Channel 6. Caroiline's final day with Boston's WHDH-TV appeared to be Wednesday, July 5, according to her public social media posts.

Prior to joining WHDH-TV in July 2020, Coggin survived a stroke at the age of 27. Just a week and a half following her wedding, she was rushed to the hospital. She recounted the story on air when she returned to work:

Caroline has used the experience to raise awareness about the condition.

"I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work in a place that I love — a place filled with so many people I love," Coggin wrote on social media this week. "I’ll see you soon, Philly! This girl from West Chester is finally coming home."

We've reached out to 6 ABC to see if they'll confirm when/where Caroline will be on TV in Philly.
