Erica Greenway joined the News Channel 3 team in October 2010.

She returns to her hometown of Virginia Beach after spending three years at WVVA in Bluefield, WV. She started at WVVA as anchor and producer for the 10 p.m. newscast on the CW. She later switched to full-time reporting and quickly moved up to weekend anchor and eventually main anchor, anchoring the 5, 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts and serving as host for the station’s weekly community events show, In Focus.

Some of the notable stories she covered during her time there include a mining explosion in West Virginia that claimed 29 lives. She was on the scene providing live updates the day after the explosion as rescue workers searched for four missing miners and provided breaking news updates on the anchor desk throughout the week as the search continued. She was also granted a one-on-one interview with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as she campaigned for president.

Erica earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Virginia Tech where she majored in communication and political science. While in college she interned at two TV stations in Virginia. She was also actively involved in the campus TV station, serving as news director and anchor.

As part of a military family, Erica grew up all over, but moved to Virginia Beach in high school where she graduated from Cox High School. She’s excited to be back in the Hampton Roads area. In her free time, Erica loves spending time outdoors, especially skiing and going to the beach.
