Erin O'Hearn returns to Action News when Nydia Han goes on maternity leave

A familiar face will soon be seen on “Action News” when anchor/consumer reporter Nydia Han is off on maternity leave.

Erin O’Hearn, who has been off-air from 6ABC for more than a year, will be anchoring Sundays from 6 to 8 a.m., from 9 to 10:30 a.m. and from noon to 1 p.m., as soon as Han goes out. Han is expecting her first child with husband Dennis Reilly, an anesthesiologist, in early May.

O’Hearn, we’re told, will also air special reports for the station.

She’s been busy with two children of her own, with developer husband Sal Paone Jr. which is why she has been off-air, but we hear she is excited to return.

“We are thrilled to have her back with the 6ABC family,” station spokeswoman Caroline Welch said yesterday.
