Erica Morrison joined the OPB reporting team in December 2017. She is part of the national “Sharing America” collaborative and covers race, identity and the changing demographics of the Pacific Northwest. Prior to joining the team she was a producer for NPR & WBUR’s Here & Now and freelanced at a number of now defunct NPR newsmagazines at the network’s headquarters. Erica began her journalism career as a print journalist but transitioned to public radio after the reality of the collapsing industry got to be too much. She is a proud graduate of “The Mecca” Howard University and a native of the DMV. Don’t talk to her about bad weather unless you’ve lived somewhere like Boston winter 2015.
