Erin Sullivan joined the NBC 15 team in the fall of 2020 as a weekday anchor and reporter for The Morning Show. You’ll see her on the “News Now” desk, following breaking news updates as you wake up each morning.
Erin comes to Madison from Joplin, Missouri where she worked at the NBC affiliate KSNF for more than 3 years. There, she worked as a reporter, weekend anchor and most recently a morning/noon anchor.
Born and raised in Littleton, Colorado, Erin is no stranger to snowy winters. She graduated with her bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism and Communications from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2017.
During her time at CU Boulder, Erin interned at Aurora TV Channel 8 and Rocky Mountain PBS in Denver. At PBS she worked for the station’s investigative unit to produce in-depth segments for the show Insight with John Ferrugia.
Erin also traveled across Cuba in 2016, working as a videographer for the CU News Corps documentary ¿Cómo fue?: A Cuban Journey. She and her team followed the former Mayor of Denver, Guillermo Vidal, back to his birthplace in Cuba. Vidal came to the United States as a child, during the Cuban Missile Crisis. ¿Cómo fue?: has since been featured in more than 8 national film festivals.
When she’s off the clock, Erin spends much of her time outdoors. She is a road bicyclist, swimmer, hiker and snowboarder. She also grew up playing competitive soccer and loves watching it at the professional level. Erin is a proud fur-mom to a chunky 3-year-old cat named Elton (named after the one and only, Sir Elton John).
