Erik joined the KRTV StormTracker Weather team as a meteorologist in September 2021. Prior to coming here, Erik worked at WUTR in Utica, New York for about a year.
Erik is a New Jersey native with a life-long love for weather. His hometown of Denville, New Jersey was struck by a major flood due to Tropical Storm Irene back in 2011. This solidified his desire to become an on-air meteorologist as he was able to photograph pictures from the storm that were aired on his local station.
Erik received his bachelor's degree in meteorology along with a minor in communications in 2020 from the State University of New York at Oswego. During his time at Oswego, Erik had the opportunity to chase lake-effect snow and study under Oswego alumni, Al Roker. He has also interned at WIS-10 News in Columbia, South Carolina and Spectrum News in Syracuse, New York.
