Erika Siebring joined the NBC Nebraska News 2 Team in August 2019 as a reporter.
Erika Siebring joins the NBC Nebraska News 2 family and the Greater Nebraska area for the first time since leaving her home state of Colorado. She graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in May 2019 with a degree in journalism and a minor in computer science.
Her interest in writing sparked when she was a child and quickly gathered steam at her high school newspaper. From there, she joined the UNC student-run newspaper The Mirror, starting as a reporter and working her way to the prestigious editor-in-chief position. She has been published in and worked as an editor for The Crucible literary magazine.
Working extensively with UNC’s Bear News broadcast station, Erika also previously interned with Denver Life Magazine and The Johnstown Breeze in Colorado. Interviewing amazing people along the way, Erika has reported on and created broadcast content covering local government, community-based events and lifestyle trends. Her travels have lead her to several different countries and allowed her to blog about the food, people and cultural experiences.
Erika is excited to live in a brand new place and share information with the NBC Nebraska viewers. In her free time, she loves to read and write poetry, work on her memoir, learn new languages and create personal projects in Python.
Erika invites the North Platte community to give her the inside scoop on how to fully enjoy all the town has to offer -- feel free to shoot her an email!
