Jericka Duncan joined CBS 3 and The CW Philly’s Eyewitness News team as a general assignment reporter in August, 2010.
Since coming to Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists named Duncan its “Journalist of the Year” in 2012. She also received a first place award from the Associated Press for Continuing Coverage in the “Basement of Horrors” story.
Before coming to Philadelphia, Duncan was a reporter for WIVB-TV, the CBS station in Buffalo where she has been on-air since August, 2007. Previously, she was an anchor/reporter for WETM, the NBC station in Elmira, New York from 2005 until 2007.
A second generation broadcaster, Duncan grew up in newsrooms shadowing her father, Ronnie Duncan, a sports anchor at WAAY in Huntsville, Alabama.
She is a 2005 graduate of Ohio University where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications while on athletic scholarship there. A standout track and field star in high school and college, Duncan set several state and college records including the record for the 100 meter hurdles at Ohio University — which still stands.
In 2005, while still a student, she was awarded an NAACP Image Award for her academic and athletic achievements. She has racked up honors in the industry as well, including a New York State Broadcasters Association Award for Best Spot News Coverage in 2007 and a local Emmy Award in the Best Morning Show category for winter storm coverage in 2008.
Active in the community, Duncan is a member of the Philadelphia Chapter of Big Brothers, Big Sisters mentoring program.
