Erica Riggins Career

Erica’s broadcasting career began in an unusual manner. Erica worked as an equipment engineer for a telecom company after graduating from the University of Texas as a mechanical engineer. Erica realized she wanted to be a part of something bigger and make a difference in her community as she progressed through the company over the next few years. Erica’s career path was changed as a result of this. She went back to school to pursue a degree in communications and television journalism.

Erica began her journalism career as a weekend anchor and reporter at KXII-TV in Sherman, Texas. She later returned to her hometown to report for News 8 Austin, now Spectrum News, a 24-hour local news channel, and to anchor the evening news.

Erica, who is always looking for new challenges, relocated to the Tampa Bay area to work as the weekend morning anchor for Spectrum Bay News 9. She is now seen on Your Morning News in Tampa Bay on weekday mornings. Erica was honored with an Emmy award for Outstanding Live Report for her story about students protesting the Iraq war. She also received the prestigious national Edward R. Murrow Award for Best Documentary for a series of reports on the troubling and growing trend of child abuse.

Erica has also received the Pinellas County Urban League’s President’s Award, the Teamster’s National Black Caucus’ Outstanding Community Service Award, and the Phi Delta Kappa national sorority’s Outstanding Service in the Field of Communications. But it’s the community service award named in her honor from Men in the Making that Erica Riggins is most proud of.
