SPRINGFIELD (WGGB) — It’s the day we at ABC40 knew was coming, while secretly hoping it never would.
News Anchor Shannon Hegy will be leaving for WPRI in Providence after 6 years of moving up the ranks at WGGB. Shannon’s talent coming right out of Hofstra University helped her skyrocket from part-time assignment desk, to reporter, to main anchor.
Shannon has been busy anchoring ABC40 at 5-6:30pm, 10pm, and 11pm, and has covered some of the biggest stories of the year, including the Boston Marathon Bombing and the tragedy in Newtown, CT.
It’s appropriate that Shannon’s last day is out at The Big E, where her personality and chemistry with co-Anchor Dave Madsen will be on full display.
You can catch Shannon one last time tonight on ABC First on FOX and ABC40 Eleven @ 11:00.
She will be missed, but we know she’ll do great! Please join us in wishing Shannon well by commenting below.
