Pinpoint Weather Alert Day: Snow continues in Denver metro through early Thursday

A Cincinnati native, Nick discovered his love for sports at a young age by attending Reds and Bengals games with his family. He was also raised a huge Kentucky basketball fan as his dad frequently took him to Rupp Arena for games.

In his hometown of Madison, Indiana (just outside of Cincinnati), Nick was a three-sport athlete in high school. He helped his high school team to a 31-2 record his senior year and a state championship in the sport of baseball. He also went on to play a brief stint of baseball at Miami University in Ohio.

When his baseball career winded down, his broadcasting career picked up. As Nick puts it, “Once I realized I wasn’t going to be able to play sports for a living, I figured I’d do the next best thing and talk about sports for a living.”

With over 15 years of experience in sports broadcasting, Nick has been fortunate enough to cover two Super Bowls, numerous NCAA Men’s basketball Final Fours and one National Championship game.

Before landing in Denver, Nick worked as the Lead Sports Anchor at KMBC in Kansas City. Prior to that, he held Sports Director positions at KTKA in Topeka, Kan. and before that at KIDK in Idaho Falls, Idaho.

He holds degrees in broadcast journalism and political science.

Nick is married to his wife Sara and has two young boys (Jack and Luke) to keep him running around constantly. His hobbies include snow skiing in the winter, mowing the lawn in the summer and Kentucky Derbying every first Saturday in May.
