“You know her as Sharon Erickson, we know her as Sharon Fullilove, and she was exactly that, full of love,” KOB news director Laurie Passman said in a statement. “We were privileged to have her in our newsroom. She lit up any room she entered. She was a good person, a dedicated reporter and a rising star who loved covering news in this community. She will be greatly missed.”
Erickson joined KOB in January and worked as a reporter and fill-in anchor. Before becoming part of the KOB team, Erickson worked as a producer and reporter at KTBS in Shreveport, LA, and as a reporter with KNOE in Monroe, LA.
In reporting Erickson’s death, KOB did not specify what type of surgery she had undergone.
