Erika Harris

Erika Harris has been in television news in the Golden Triangle since 1999. She grew up in Houston and graduated from Texas Southern University. Before  earning  a B.A. in journalism,   Erika was selected  as 1 of 7 college students across the country to participate in the prestigious Kaiser Family Foundation's internship program. During  her  internship,  she  met with a congressional  health care sub-committee under Bill Clinton's administration  and completed a workshop on urban health reporting at Harvard School of Public Health.
In 1997,  she  got  her first  television job  at KRIV FOX 26 Houston as an associate producer.    In 1999, she  moved to Beaumont  to become a general assignment reporter. A few years later,  she  became an anchor for another local news affiliate.  

Erika has covered some of the most compelling stories ...  ranging from the indictment of public officials,  the space shuttle Columbia explosion, the dragging death of James Byrd Jr., the West Brook bus tragedy,  and   Hurricane Rita.  She   has  also volunteered for numerous community projects and was a mentor to area high school students.  Her  most cherished award is from the Ben Rogers "I Have A Dream Program". 

In 2007,  after taking time off to be a stay at home mom,  Erika  returned to the anchor desk at 12 News.  When she is not on the air,  she's  always on  her  most favorite assignment as mom and wife.
