Nick, a native of Hagerstown, Md., has always had a passion for journalism. A lifelong sports fanatic, he got his start in media as a sports staff writer for The Diamondback, the University of Maryland's independent daily student-run newspaper.
But it wasn't until he interned at WHAG-TV, the NBC affiliate station in his hometown, that he discovered his interest in reporting local news. Working within every stage of the process, from morning story pitches to presenting reports in the studio, Nick knew this was the right career choice.
After that experience, he gained exposure to the network side of broadcasting, as well. Nick worked for ABC's affiliate news service, ABC NewsOne, in Los Angeles during the summer of 2013, and edited footage for news stories that appeared across the country. He also wrote stories for ABC News' main website and social media platforms. In the fall of that year, he worked at NBC News Channel on Capitol Hill.
Before graduating, Nick reported for Capital News Service, the University of Maryland's most competitive program that provides stories on issues affecting residents in the state. His beats included state politics in Annapolis, sports and the environment. His most memorable moment was producing investigative reports concerning the major data breach at the university, which exposed the social security numbers of more than 300,000 people.
Nick got his first "real" job right where he started in broadcasting, at WHAG-TV. He started working in September of 2014, and has since filled the roles of web producer, multi-media journalist, weekend evening anchor and weekday morning anchor. He enjoys getting the opportunity to report on meaningful topics, such as issues affecting veterans and those with disabilities.
