Erica is the traffic anchor on Good Morning Alabama and covers the transportation beat for evening newscasts.

Erica joined ABC 33/40 from our sister station in Charleston South Carolina where she also worked as the morning traffic anchor and a reporter. During her time in the Lowcountry she told many feature stories, covered live breaking news & major traffic incidents like the lane reversal of Interstate 26 for Hurricane Matthew Evacuations.

Erica earned her Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications at Towson University (Go Tigers!) in Maryland. During her time at Towson she worked as an intern at WBAL-TV in Baltimore. She completed two internships where she learned traffic reporting, general assignment reporting, assignment desk duties and more.

While Erica spent more than 10 years in Maryland, she grew up in (the cold) Syracuse New York. When she’s not telling you the latest on the roads Erica enjoys yoga, traveling, and spending time with her 17 year old chihuahua Javier. She’s excited to explore Birmingham and get to know all the Magic City has to offer!
