West Michigan native, Erica Francis graduated from Central Michigan University with a Bachelor of Applied Arts degree, spending a semester at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore studying journalism and film. Erica was also a member of the sorority Delta Zeta whose philanthropy is centered around speech and hearing, naming the Starkey Hearing Foundation their National Philanthropy Partner in 2015.
Erica joined the WKRN news team as the 4 p.m co-anchor in June of 2019. Shortly thereafter, she met Meaghan, whose passion for helping others hear is nothing short of admirable. Erica hopes to continue the mission she started in college through Delta Zeta to help Meaghan follow her dreams and raise money and awareness for those who need it most.
