Nicole Nalepa is the co-anchor of Connecticut’s #1 morning newscast, “Eyewitness News This Morning."
She came to WFSB in December 2013; and since then, life has never been the same. Little did Nicole know much this team would turn into family.
Before coming to Connecticut, Nicole spent several years anchoring and reporting in the mornings at WWLP in Springfield, MA. She was one of the first “live on-scene” reporters from western Massachusetts, during the manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombing suspect; CNN aired several of her live reports and her coverage contributed to an Emmy-winning newscast. Just days after Hurricane Sandy paralyzed parts of the Northeast, Nicole accompanied local pilots who were delivering aid to one of the hardest hit areas in New Jersey, and documented her journey. She also covered the deadly tornado that ripped through western Massachusetts in 2011, and was part of the news team that won two Emmys and an AP Award for the coverage.
Nicole graduated from Westfield State University with a Communication degree. She was selected for a post-grad internship at CBS News in New York on the "Evening News with Katie Couric.”
When she’s not on-air, Nicole keeps very busy in the community. She currently serves as a board member for the “Community Music School”, records a weekly show for CRIS Radio, and dedicates much of her free time visiting local schools, reading to students, emceeing numerous events, and raising money for charity. Perhaps her greatest achievement yet has been becoming a mother. She and her husband welcomed their first child in May 2019.
