Downtown Lansing, Old Town & REO Town Neighborhood Reporter

Hi Lansing!

I'm Erica and I am absolutely delighted to be part of the Fox 47 News team!

My role here at FOX 47 News is multimedia journalist or MMJ.

During my tenure here, I will focus on the community and all the unique stories that make the area a great place to work and live.

My broadcasting career started at Wayne State University's public radio station WDET.

There I learned how to report and anchor.

Since then, I've worked as a reporter, anchor, and producer in both TV and radio.

Some of the stations I've worked for include: 13 ABC, 47 ABC, WTOP, WJBK, WDET, WWJ, WJR, and WCHB.

Just before joining the FOX 47 team, I worked in Ohio at an ABC affiliate as the lead morning news reporter and MMJ.

Before that, I spent a few years on the East Coast as a news anchor for 47 ABC and WTOP in Washington, D.C.

I've been blessed to win several awards for my commitment to the community as well as reporting and anchoring.

Storytelling is one of my great passions and I'm so happy to be able to do that here in Michigan!

Some of my other passions include spending time with family, urban ballroom dancing, singing karaoke, and telling off-color jokes.
