Erica Boniface is the founder and CEO of Colorado Media Network, LLC. A native Coloradan, she is a media professional with more than 15 years of experience in the industry.
When she was just 21 years old, Erica was the morning talk show host with the World’s First Internet Television Network, ManiaTV! Leading the way for online media, Erica hosted more than four hours of television programming daily on the network’s morning talk show while interviewing hundreds of celebrities along the way. Some of her favorites include: E!’s “Chelsea Lately” host Chelsea Handler, legend Olivia Newton John, co-anchor of NBC’s “The Today Show” Hoda Kotb and Bravo TV’s Andy Cohen.
After ManiaTV!, Erica turned to local television news and landed at 9NEWS-KUSA in Denver, CO. She launched, produced and ran the entertainment hub, Metromix.com. In addition to her digital roles with the website, she hosted multiple on-air segments on 9NEWS as the entertainment go-to girl for everything to do in and around Denver.
Her next career move was a roller coaster ride…literally. She was hired as the PR Manager of Elitch Gardens Theme & Water Park in downtown Denver. She oversaw all of Elitch Gardens’ media relations, community relations, crisis communications, social media and guest relations efforts at the park. One of Erica’s proudest moments was naming the water slide “Tube Top,” where she also helped create media kits and press materials using the slide’s unique name as inspiration.
Erica is the mother to her son, Beckham, and daughter, Jozy, and you’ll often spot the two at story time, swimming at the nearby rec centers and playing soccer in Boulder. She’s the “Go-To Mom” for play dates and exciting outings. She even created a group for moms in the area to meet up, ask questions and seek advice—to use as a sounding board for current and expecting mothers to young children.
