Plus, it allows Nicole to interact with viewers more as she delivers up to eight live reports during the four-hour morning show!

Nicole grew up in Metro Detroit and has been in the business for a decade, beginning as a writer at WXYZ in Detroit, before making stops in Alpena and Evansville, Indiana.
