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.”

The station seems to be in hiring mode.

Morning coanchor and Miami import Erika von Tiehl, 30, starts at Ukee Washington's elbow in mid-August, and interim weather guy Justin Drabick, 29, is supposedly about to be made full time, just as Doug Kammerer heads off to Washington, D.C.
