Jeannette Reyes Leaving Action News Returning to D.C. and Fox 5 Morning News

Jeannette Reyes, the current 4:00pm news anchor and reporter at 6ABC Action News will be leaving the Philadelphia station and return to the Washington, D.C. market for the morning anchor position at Fox 5. She will begin on December 7th as essentially the replacement for Allison Seymour. 

Reyes, a former general assignment reporter at ABC7, will now be able to spend more time with her husband, Robert Burton, the morning anchor at Channel 7 WJLA-TV. But now they will be on competing stations.

The married couple have been the subject of several humorous viral Tik-Toks over the last few weeks on the subject of how news anchors talk at home. (Or how people think news anchors talk at home...)

Reyes' last day at Acton News has not been announced.

Here's the news release from Fox 5 WTTG-TV:

Fox 5 is excited to announce that Jeannette Reyes has joined our team! Reyes will co-anchor FOX 5 Morning with Steve Chenevey. They will be joined by Tucker Barnes with weather and Erin Como with traffic from 6:00 - 9:00 a.m. She will then join the entire morning team - Wisdom Martin, Holly Morris, Marissa Mitchell and Erin Como on the #1 rated Good Day DC from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.

“Jeannette is the definition of a renaissance TV anchor,” said Vice President and News Director Paul McGonagle. “She’s bilingual, has major market experience, and clearly understands the need for strong journalism and good reporting. How lucky are we that she’s always dreamed of working at FOX 5!”

“I will be doing what I love, in a town I love and living with a person I love,” Reyes said. “Yes, I know my husband and I will be working at competing stations, in the same time slots, but what better way is there to demonstrate how to be competitive and compassionate at the same time? I will work hard to earn the trust and respect of the people who count on us to keep them informed.”
