CBS3 has hired Jericka Duncan, last at the CBS affiliate in Buffalo, N.Y., as a general-assignment reporter.
Duncan, 26, is a second-generation TV newsie, as her dad is veteran sports anchor Ronnie Duncan of WAAY in Huntsville, Ala.
Duncan -- and her first name rhymes with "Eureka" -- has been in Buffalo for three years after two years at a smaller station in Elmira, N.Y. She has a B.S. in communications from Ohio U and considers Cleveland her hometown -- though her bio points out that she has lived in seven states (now eight) because of her father's career.
Her start date has not been announced. A blog in Buffalo reports that her bosses tried like heck to keep her, but as she said: "I am young and single and this is the time for me explore other opportunities.”
