Erin Powell came to NBC Charlotte in May 2013 to join the team of Web producers after spending almost two years in Spokane, Wash.
There, she worked on the website for WCNC's sister station KREM 2, in addition to filling in as a newscast producer. She worked crazy hours but she helped the station win an Edward R. Murrow Award for Best Broadcast Website.
Erin's originally from St. Louis, where she also worked for a year after college at the CBS affiliate KMOV. She graduated from Webster University in 2010 with a degree in broadcast journalism.
Now you'll see her on air a few times a week talking about "What's Hot on the Web" in between actually writing and posting to WCNC.com.
It's been hard moving across the United States and leaving behind friends and family, and she hopes to eventually get back to St. Louis (Go Cards!!!). In the mean time, she's enjoying getting to know Charlotte and travel around the country to visit everyone she's met along the way.
