She is also a reporter for WPVI in Philadelphia, and in the past she has worked for stations in Charlotte, North Carolina; Columbia, South Carolina; and Bluefield, West Virginia. She has been responsible for some very interesting and eye-opening stories during her time in the field.
Eva Pilgrim was born in Seoul, South Korea, on August 30, 1982. She has black hair and brownish-hazel eyes, and she is 5’ 7” tall. Her family was a military family, and they moved to the United States sometime after she was born. She also has two siblings – a brother and a sister.
At an early age, Pilgrim developed a love of debating and in fact, she was even on the debate team at the University of Florida, where she received a bachelor’s degree. She went on to receive a master’s degree from the University of South Carolina.
She began her career as a web producer at WIS-TV and worked there from 2002 to 2004. Afterwards, Pilgrim worked for WVVA, then at a Fox TV station in Charlotte, where one of her best stories involved a cab driver who refused to pick up certain riders, including handicapped riders.
Pilgrim is unmarried, but is currently dating a man by the name of Mikah Caskey. Caskey works in the county courthouse as a criminal prosecutor. It is not known how serious their relationship is. Before dating Caskey, Pilgrim dated Clayton Anderson. Her hobbies include playing the violin and piano, and riding motorbikes. Her estimated net worth is said to be in the $1 million range.
She is also very popular on social media, where her Instagram account has more than 36,000 followers and her Twitter account has nearly 21,000 followers. She also has a very active Facebook page, where she boasts over 37,000 likes and 37,000 friends.
Her Career Is Blooming
Pilgrim eventually became an anchor at WPVI, but it was in 2015 that her career began to blossom. That was the year that she took the job with ABC News as a correspondent. Among her many stories throughout the years include military members who were scammed, the Amtrak derailment, the Sago Mine disaster, the Pope’s historic U.S. visit, and the stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair.
Today, Pilgrim works for both WPVI and ABC News as a correspondent, so she is a very busy lady. Her parents are Korean and American, so she enjoys the benefits of both of these nationalities. This is the timeline of her work:
- WIS-TV: 2002-2004 – web producer
- WVVA in Bluefield, WV: 2004-2006 – morning anchor and reporter
- Fox Charlotte: 2006-2009 – news reporter and anchor
- WXIN-TV: 2009-2012
- WPVI in Philadelphia: 2012 to the present – anchor and reporter (action news)
- ABC News: 2015 to the present – correspondent
Pilgrim is a vibrant reporter and journalist who has gained the respect of all of her past and present co-workers. Her accurate reporting is also truthful and relevant, and her investigative skills, especially, have allowed her to gain numerous awards throughout her career. Her social media sites all have thousands of followers, and this is important to her because she loves keeping her fans up to date on what she is doing.
Other stories she’s done include the death of mega-star Prince, the protests in Charlottesville, and hurricanes Matthew, Irma, Florence, and Harvey. She has won the Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of South Carolina, where she is one of the most well-known and well-loved alumni from the university.
In addition to all of this, Pilgrim is also very much interested in health and fitness, and she even shares skincare and fitness tips on her Instagram account. It is natural that she is interested in her looks, considering her chosen career, so it is not surprising that she is interested in fitness and health.
This and That
Pilgrim spent a lot of her childhood traveling and living in places all across the country, which enabled her to win friends very easily wherever she went. Her co-workers all say that she is easy to work with and is a true professional, something that undoubtedly has helped her career get to where it is today. Her net worth is estimated to be a minimum of $1 million.
Because she is in her late 30s and has yet to be married, there have been rumors that she is a lesbian. However, considering she has been in two serious relationships – both with men – this is highly unlikely. It is more likely that she is simply concentrating on and enjoying her career, and leaving her personal life to work out on its own.
Eva Pilgrim is a beautiful and very talented journalist who is also very well respected. She has done some amazing and very important stories throughout her career, and fortunately for her viewers, this is not likely to end anytime soon.
