During 2004, Erica was frequently seen on NFL game telecasts and other programming as a reporter for the NFL/United Way ad campaign.
Previously, Erica was a host and anchor for the National Basketball Association’s owned and operated television network, NBA TV, and for Major League Baseball’s popular online destination, MLB.com. Her other on-air credits include anchoring on the ESPN Radio Network and at ESPN’s local radio station in New York.
