Nicole Johnson

Nicole Johnson, Emmy-Award winning journalist and native New Yorker, began her journalism career as an editorial writer for, The Orlando Sentinel, in Florida where she attended Rollins College. Nicole's debut on air was at Bronx Net and News 12 throughout the tri-state area. In pursuit of her TV news goals, Nicole held a variety of positions at WPIX-11, but was most well-known for her position as the Assignment Desk Editor. On September 11th, 2001 Nicole was the voice of grace when New York City was under attack. She not only handled all the assignments that day, but by afternoon Nicole was sent to Ground Zero where she stayed for several days.

In 2002, Nicole moved to Rochester, NY as a General Assignment Reporter for WROC TV. Eventually she returned to New York City where she landed at NY-1 News. Nicole is an extremely hard worker and always strives to go to the next level. Therefore, in less than a year she became a General Assignment Reporter at MY 9 News.

Nicole is an active member of the National Association of Black Journalists. She is recognized by her peers as "the one to watch." She has style and class but is also a tough no nonsense journalist who will most likely beat the competition on any News Story. Nicole has done a series of exclusive reports, including the "friendly fire" death of NYPD officer Omar Edwards.

Nicole is currently covering breaking news for Fox 5 WNYW/MY 9. One of Nicole’s most notable stories was on, Shannon Tavares, an 11 year-old Broadway Star battling leukemia. The story gained national attention and shed light on why it is so important to become a Bone Marrow Donor in the African American Community. Going beyond her work duties, Nicole became a friend to the little girl and her family as they struggled to find a bone marrow donor. For weeks Nicole attended Bone Marrow Drives and made sure the information got on the air. Unfortunately, Shannon passed away, but her story will save others suffering from the disease. More than 10,000 people registered to become donors after seeing Nicole's report.

The Professional Network honored Nicole for her excellence in journalism. She was also a recipient of two New York Association of Black Journalist Awards and an Associated Press Award for Breaking News. Along with juggling her journalism career, Nicole dedicates time to help her community by volunteering at local schools. Nicole is also very active with the Sickle Cell Foundation. "I put God first in my life and believe with his grace anything is possible." After 6 years at Fox 5 News Nicole joined PIX 11 in July 2012 as Breaking News Reporter. Accomplishments aside, Nicole believes her biggest and most rewarding experience is being a mother to her 6 year-old son, Parker.

Nicole Johnson Quote: “This is my second year being an instructor and the workshop has taken on new shape.The students are amazing, they are dedicated and hardworking, true journalists in every sense. From day one after the first assignment I knew they would be up for a challenge but had no idea they would also challenge me.Wow what a special group of people!!!” After 6 years at Fox 5 News Nicole joined PIX 11 in July 2012 as Breaking News Reporter.
