Erin began her television career on the Otago University programme Cow TV, chasing students around the streets early on Saturday mornings in the Walk of Shame segment.
She then pursued a slightly more serious career as a ONE News reporter in Wellington. There she covered the education round as well as delved into the more colourful stories.
Erin has recently returned from a five-year stint living in the UK.
Along with lots of travel, she worked for a number of news organisations including the BBC, Sky and Al Jazeera.
