Erika joined KCTV5's It's Your Morning in December of 2012.
A native of Scottsdale, Arizona, Erika earned her bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications at Arizona State University.
Erika's on air career began in the Cornhusker State reporting for KOLN/KGIN-TV in Lincoln after working and interning at KNXV-TV in Phoenix, AZ. From there, she quickly became promoted to weekday morning anchor.
Erika is excited to call Kansas City home!
Erika is the queen of cuisine! Cooking is one of her new found loves and her critics (friends mostly) say she's pretty good at it. Her secret: is a good, easy to follow recipe!
Outside of work, you can find Erika reading, cooking, shopping in the Plaza, discovering new restaurants, or planning her next big trip as she's always had the "travel bug."
If you have any questions, comments, story ideas or just want to say 'Hi', feel free to email Erika at email@example.com or follow @ErikaTallan on Twitter. That's why she's here!
