Erica Sykes is an aggressive, ambitious young news reporter for Miami's CBS station WFOR-TV. She is portrayed by Amy Laughlin.

Background Edit

Her antics are often described as crazy by the CSI team and they generally find her annoying, especially Ryan Wolfe (apparently, she once dated him just to get information out of him). It is implied that CSI Boa Vista was jealous of Ryan and Erica's "closeness".

Season Four Edit

She targeted Ryan and would frequently broadcast him at close range, much to his annoyance. But in the end, the team uses her tapes to find their suspect (episode 401, "From the Grave ").

In the season 4 episode "Free Fall", Ryan warned her to stay away from two former prisoners after he suspected that they are targets for murder. She refused to listen and got shot in the process. It is Erica who revealed to Ryan that there was a mole in the lab in a special extended scene after the episode "Urban Hellraisers" aired.

Season Five Edit

She also helps Ryan in a case regarding abuse of eminent domain, with the government evicting people from their homes before turning the land over to a private developer (episode 505, "Death Eminent").

In a later episode, however, she puts the life of Natalia's sister at risk by mentioning on the air that she is a victim in a kidnapping (episode 508, "Darkroom").
