Eriketa Cost is excited to be returning back to News 8 as a part-time reporter, after interning with them in the summer of 2019. She has also interned at News 8’s sister station in Buffalo, News 4 WIVB. Eriketa is a Rochester native, and thrilled to be starting her career close to home.
Eriketa graduated with SUNY Fredonia in May of 2020. She earned a degree in journalism, with a minor in music. During her college career, she was active in student-run newspaper and TV.
She is named after her great-grandmother, of Greek origin. A fun way to remember how to pronounce “Eriketa” is that it rhymes with the popular Greek cheese, “Feta.” Another fun fact about Eriketa is that she is quite the music nerd. She loves to sing, and fiddles around on piano from time to time.
