Erica Stapleton

Erica joined the news team in February 2014 after graduating from Boston University.  The Rome, N.Y. native is delighted to be living in Maine!

In May 2015 Erica moved on to become the Weekend Anchor for WABI TV5 News at 6 and 11.  She still remains passionate about reporting though, and still is able to get out in the field during the week.  Some of her favorite stories to date include ones about local heroes, creative new ventures and people making a difference in the community.

Erica gained much of her reporting experience in Boston as an intern at WCVB and NECN.  She also reported at school for various broadcasts, covering the 2013 Marathon Bombings, 2012 presidential election and other local races.

When she's not out reporting the latest Maine news, you can find her running outside, hiking or cooking with family and friends.  As a huge foodie, she also likes to check out all the cuisines Maine has to offer.
