Nikki Laurenzo - Evening News Anchor

Posted: Updated:

After spending almost five years in Big Sky Country, Nikki is thrilled to call Central Texas home.

She will be working along side Doug Currin as the evening co-anchor at 5, 6, and 10 pm.

Nikki began her journalism career at KTVQ in Billings, Montana as a general assignment reporter. Shortly after that, she became the weekend news anchor and in August 2010 made the switch to anchor/producer of Q2's brand new 90 minute morning show.

During her time in Montana, Nikki covered several major stories that received national attention including the historic Father's Day tornado as well as the  manhunt for three fugitives in the area of Yellowstone National Park. Nikki has been recognized several times for her excellence in reporting by the Montana Broadcasters Association and the Associated Press.

Giving back to the community is something that is extremely important to Nikki. She has been involved with several non-profits such as Make-A-Wish Foundation, The American Cancer Society and the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Nikki is a proud graduate of the Edward R. Murrow School of Communication at Washington State University..GO COUGS! She is a huge sports fan and loves cheering on her alma mater! Nikki is very excited to experience the real "Friday Night Lights" and all the other sports action the Lone Star State has to offer.

Nikki was born and raised in South Florida, but considers the Pacific Northwest home after her parents relocated to the Seattle area in the late 90's.

When Nikki isn't behind the anchor desk, she enjoys exercising, trying new restaurants and exploring the outdoors.
