Erica Ricci

Erica is an Emmy award-winning journalist who joined Eyewitness News as a part-time reporter in June of 2017.

She began reporting on the night shift but has settled into a more regular role on Eyewitness News This Morning. 

Erica comes to Eyewitness News most recently from Boston25 News, the FOX affiliate, in Boston. During her six years as a part-time reporter there, she covered the arrest of Aaron Hernandez, she was on scene when the Watertown manhunt broke out following the Boston Marathon bombings, and she reported from the side of the highway during the first snowstorm ever to shut down travel in the Commonwealth. 

Erica also contributed to Boston25’s coverage of the opioid epidemic with a story about the silver lining to the crisis— an increase in organ donors. That story garnered Erica her first Emmy award. 

Erica graduated from Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA with a degree in Communications in 2002. She began her journalism career immediately following on the assignment desk at WJAR. She then worked as an anchor and reporter at a cable news station in Fall River, MA before taking on those same roles at WLNE. 

Erica works only part-time at Eyewitness News because her family is her priority. She says her husband and three young children are her full-time job. Erica is actively involved in the PTO at their school and leads several small groups at their church. In any spare time, she loves working out and cooking.
