Eric is the in-studio reporter for NBC 5 Today weekday mornings from 5 a.m. to 7 a.m. and he co-anchors the 11 a.m. newscast with Kristi Nelson.
Before making his way to North Texas, Eric was an anchor at WLKY-TV in his home area of Louisville, Ky. He' has also worked in Memphis, Tenn., Jackson, Miss. and Bozeman, Mont.
During that time, Eric was honored for his work by city councils and the Associated Press. He is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists.
Eric is an unapologetic and die-hard fan of UofL basketball, but he's looking forward to joining the legions of fans cheering on the Mavs, Cowboys and Rangers.
Eric loves to travel and speaks fluent French and he's working on Russian and Portuguese. His longest running goal is to report from the Olympic Games.
He loves the outdoors and he’s an avid tennis player. And he can't wait to pull up a chair at the many great restaurants North Texas has to offer. Suggestions anyone?
