Erica Grow and 6ABC are parting company at the end of her contract, which expires at the end of the year, station sources tell me.

The weekend meteorologist, a native of Bethlehem and a 2002 Penn State grad, joined the station in January 2007.

It's not clear if she'll be back on the air. She's still on the station's Web site, not surprising since she's still an employee.

It's also not clear what her next step is.

Grow's rise in the biz has been rapid. She started in 2003 at an ABC station in Odessa/Midland, Texas -- market size #155 -- and soon after moved back east, to join WHP, the CBS affiliate in Harrisburg -- market size #39.

Next stop was big-time: Philly, market #4.

Grow replaced SallyAnn Mosey at 6ABC; Mosey has been freelancing for Fox29.
