Upon graduation, Jericka marched forward with her career and landed the job of assignment reporter and anchor positions at WETMTV at Elmira, New York.
Though it seems like a smooth journey for a 37-year-old, it wasn’t. In an interview with Variety, Jericka revealed that she had battle racism throughout her graduation days.

But the CBS reporter was equally determined to not give up and not give in to the racism that prevailed around her. Her work with WETMTV and WIVB established her career as a reporter and an anchor and brought her under the public spotlight. Duncan was recruited by CBS News in June 2010 in which Jericka officially joined the CBS 3 KYW family in Philadelphia.
