In the almost eight years she's worked for Channel 10, Erin Donovan has risen through the ranks, from photojournalist behind the camera to on-air personality and the go-to gal for all things in local entertainment. Now, she's moving to a new job promoting the city she's grown to love.
Since 2009, Erin has taken on challenges sent in by viewers as part of her Darin Erin series with plenty of bravery and her trademark snort. Despite a few close calls, she completed all of the challenges she was presented.
Viewers will now be able to see Erin in her new role as communications director for Visit Knoxville.
On July 19, Live at Five at 4 looked back at some of her zaniest moments and at some of the lives she touched during her time here at WBIR.
Among her most noted works in the East Tennessee is her work with Big Brothers Big Sisters of East Tennessee. She has been a "Big Sis" to Jurnee for four years. Erin has hosted the Live a Little series on Channel 10 for nearly two years. The series works to match "Littles" with a big brother or sister from our community.
(note: The Live a Little series will continue on Channel 10)
