Eric Levy is a midday anchor with Spectrum News 13, where he’s been since September 2017. He moved to Orlando a week before Hurricane Irma hit, forcing him to jump right in with the team. But he loves the culture of teamwork around the newsroom and says he’s in his dream job.
Eric loves telling stories that catch viewers’ attention — he doesn’t want to be the guy at the party who people drone out. He knows his stories are always going to impact someone and can even make a difference in someone’s life, and that’s when he feels like he’s done his job.
Eric is an Emmy-nominated journalist with more than 20 years of experience. He started as a traffic reporter in 2000, then moved to news reporting a year later. The first story he ever covered as a journalist was the September 11, 2001 attacks, and that’s still the most impactful coverage he’s ever done. The stories of survival from New Yorkers amazed him the most.
Eric has had to work hard to be on air since being born with a lazy eye. He had corrective surgery in 2015 and has been able to continue telling stories with even more confidence.
When not on air, you might find Eric bowling or traveling — he just got his first passport in 2018. He loves trying new restaurants, but his two favorites are Francesco's Ristorante & Pizzeria in Maitland, and Jade Sushi & New Asian in Orlando’s College Park neighborhood. He loves Orlando’s welcoming atmosphere and is still looking for the community’s best-kept secret.
