Erika Gonzalez joined the Fox 6 News team in September 2013. She's thrilled to call Birmingham her new home.
In the winter of 2011 she moved to Myrtle Beach, SC where she accepted a job with the FOX6's sister station, WMBF. There she reported the traffic in the mornings and covered news stories throughout the Grand Strand.
Erika is a Florida International University graduate. She started her career working for a public relations firm in Miami, her hometown. She broke into TV news as an assignment editor for the CBS affiliate in Miami, WFOR.
"Years ago I learned a valuable lesson as an assignment editor for CBS Miami -- news never sleeps. As a reporter in Myrtle Beach I learned the importance of being a team player," Erika says.
Erika loves to spend time with her friends and family, she enjoys cooking, reading, running, and learning. If you see her out and about, she hopes you'll stop her for a friendly hello. Erika's passion for her work and never-ending curiosity about the world around her means no story is too big or too small to cover.
