What happened to Jamie Apody?

Jamie hasn't been seen on 6 ABC since the end of the Philadelphia Phillies season in October, which naturally led many to wonder whether she had been fired or decided to leave the station of her own accord. Jamie has been with the station for more than a decade. She was present for some of the most substantial victories the town has seen, including a Super Bowl and a World Series.

Although she has been posting on social media regularly, Jamie has yet to explain her absence from 6 ABC. For now at least, her bio is still on the news station's website, and her bios on social media still say that she works for the station.

Thanks to some digging from, though, we may now know why Jamie isn't on the air or writing stories for the website.

Jamie's email currently returns an out-of-office message that says "I am currently taking a leave of absence from my 6abc sports-casting duties and will not be responding to emails related to my work at 6abc."

It would appear, then, that Jamie is taking a leave of absence, and is still employed with the network. The reason for this leave of absence is unclear, and it's also unclear when or if Jamie may return to the station.

Fans are concerned about Jamie's absence.

Although Jamie hasn't addressed her absence on social media, fans have weighed in to say that they hope she's back soon, and that her leave of absence doesn't ultimately mean that she'll be fired from the station.

"You are more than just a sports journalist you are our friend. We are so glad to see that you are doing well. I hope Channel 6 comes to their senses and brings you back. I hold no malice toward the new girl but I like your reporting so much better," one person wrote.

Clearly, Jamie has plenty of loyal fans who will be deeply upset if she leaves 6 ABC, especially if it means she has to stop covering sports in Philadelphia altogether.
