Erin is thrilled she works her dream job in her home state. A Cache Valley girl through and through, Erin graduated from Utah State University and is proud to call herself an Aggie. She’s a Multimedia Journalist (MMJ), which means she’s her own photographer and editor on top of being a reporter.

Before joining the Fox13 team, Erin was a freelance photographer in Cache Valley for all Salt Lake City TV Stations.

In 2017, Erin covered President Trump’s Inaugural Ceremony and the first Woman’s March in Washington D.C. for Utah Public Radio—an award winning radio news piece for the 2017 SPJ Mark of Excellence Awards.

She returned to the East Coast later that year to work in the Senate as a communications intern. Her boss remarked that she knew how to explain the reconciliation rules for health care reform “better than most senators.” Erin loved her up-close and personal association with our Utah Delegates as well as national political leaders.

Erin is one of the only bilingual reporters in Utah who speaks Cantonese. Living in Hong Kong China for 18 months, she fell in love with the culture, language and people.

While studying journalism and political science at Utah State University, Erin researched and co-wrote an award winning paper on Utah women and the constitutional defenses they employed for suffrage.

When she’s not pursuing a story, you can find Erin enjoying time with her family, hiking, researching Utah’s history and serving within her community.

Erin loves any and all story ideas! Feel free to contact her anytime at or on Twitter @erincoxnews.
