Erica Bivens joined KPLC in August 2013.

She graduated in three and a half years from Michigan State University with a Bachelor's degree in Broadcast Journalism and specialization in Women, Gender and Social Justice. Erica's degree has advanced her to work in radio, announce for the Class A "Lansing Lugnuts," host Carnival parades in the U.S. Virgin Islands, and work as a News Reporter/Anchor.

Although she hails from Michigan, Erica comes to KPLC from St. Thomas where she worked as a News Reporter/Sports Anchor for CBS-TV2. Prior to that, she worked for WTJX, a PBS affiliate, covering all types of news – even providing live reports for The Weather Channel during her first hurricane.
