Erica Nochlin joined KATU in August 2011 and already loves living and working in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. She comes to us from the heart of the country, growing up in the Kansas City area and graduating from Indiana University's School of Journalism.

After school, she took a job as a part-time reporter in Columbia, Missouri, and worked her way up to evening anchor. She covered everything from consumer scams to the state capitol. Erica also worked on investigative pieces, exposing a fraudulent medical spa and reporting on teen sex videos gone viral.

Erica earned awards from the Missouri Broadcasters Association for her investigative work and from the Society of Professional Journalists for both investigative and general reporting.

When she's not telling stories, Erica is taking advantage of the area's outdoor activities. So far, her favorite thing to do is hike in the Gorge. She also loves to dance and has even busted a move on KATU!

Erica encourages you to e-mail her with story ideas, comments or just to say hi!
