Erin Meehan Breen was born in New York, raised in Louisiana and she went to college at the University of Washington in Seattle. She comes from a family of 6 siblings where it wasn't unusual to have to compete for the chance to tell stories at the dinner table. Her family admits she's been quite a storyteller since about the age of 10.
After working as a reporter/anchor and news director in Eureka, California she came to Reno in 1982 and has been a staple in Northern Nevada media ever since. Working in all aspects of the media she has spent decades in commercial television, provided public affairs programming, political analysis and documentaries to Public Television and provides an award-winning weekly column to the Reno Gazette Journal.
Now that her children are old enough, she has come back to news as a member of the KTVN Team. Erin anchors KTVN's Channel 2 News This Morning and will be covering education. With 3 children of her own, she brings new perspective to the issues all parents face.
Hobbies? Who has time for hobbies? But she does concentrate her time on writing, raising children and an occasional trip to the beach.
