Nichole Berlie anchors Today in St. Louis every weekday morning from 5-7 a.m.
Originally from Lincoln, Nebraska, Nichole earned a bachelor's degree in broadcasting from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (Go Huskers!), with minors in mathematics, Spanish and English. She also earned a master's degree in broadcast journalism from the Newhouse School of Journalism at Syracuse University (Go Orange!) in New York.
Nichole is no stranger to early mornings! She spent 5 years as a morning anchor at KETV in Omaha, Nebraska. She also spent time as a reporter in Omaha and Evansville, Indiana.
People often ask Nichole how she can stay so energized so early in the morning -- she attributes her cheerfulness to large amounts of caffeine and a small amount of "crazy!"
In her spare time she enjoys exploring the St. Louis area, working out, reading, spending time with friends and family, and taking orders from the ruler of her house -- her cat, Maddie.
Nichole loves to hear comments and story ideas from viewers, you can find her on Twitter and Facebook.
