Erica is a U of I alum and excited to be working in the Illini community. She joined the WCIA news team back in 2010 as a producer for the 7:00pm news and then The Morning Show. In February of 2011, Erica earned the title of reporter and now gets to share your stories every day. She loves reports that teach her more about the farming community or when she can try something new, like archery.
Erica grew up in Carol Stream, IL but over the years she and her family have migrated to the Central Illinois area. She graduated in orange and blue in 2010 with a major in broadcast journalism and also interned at WCIA for a year before landing her job.
When Erica isn’t roaming Central Illinois and telling your stories, you’ll probably find her planning her 2014 wedding. Her other free time is spent playing with her dog Zuzu and going to the movies.
If you have any story ideas for Erica or just want to chit-chat about pop-culture or current events, she would love for you to contact her on Facebook or Twitter.
