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.

Erica has been in Taekwondo for most of her life. She earned the AAU 2003 Joel Ferrell Award for best female Taekwondo athlete in the United States. In her spare time, (which is somewhat a myth), she enjoys running, reading, spending time with her husband and two kids (their dog and cat). If you see Erica on the street, don't be shy, go say hi!
