On weekends, NBC10 viewers will be getting their weather from a fresh face.
The station on Monday announced Erika Martin as its new weekend weather person. She will helm weather reports on NBC10 News' 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. broadcasts on Saturdays and Sundays.
She earned a meteorology degree from Mississippi State University, and went to Santa Monica College for her broadcast journalism degree. Additionally, Martin is a Certified Storm Spotter for the National Weather Service, and is in the process of completing her certification to become a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist through the American Meteorological Society.
NBC10 previously misidentified Martin as a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist in a press release. A spokesperson has since issued a statement apologizing for the error, indicating that the station "misidentified her certification."
"She is in the process of completing her certification," the spokesperson said. "We apologize for the error."
