Nicolette Schleisman joined WKRG News 5 as a reporter in May 2018.
Originally from Plano, Texas, Nicolette comes our way from Shreveport, Louisiana. She’s excited to call the Gulf Coast home.
Nicolette started her broadcast career in Sherman, Texas, where she did practically all jobs she could in the newsroom and fell in love with reporting. From Sherman, she moved to Topeka, Kansas, and worked as a reporter and the weekend anchor. She then moved to Shreveport, Louisiana, where she discovered the magic of Mardi Gras.
Nicolette has covered a wide range of stories, from historic floods and the aftermath, Mardi Gras, a family’s fight to help their young daughter see, to meeting with one of the original plaintiffs in the monumental Brown V. Board of Education case on the 60th anniversary of the decision.
Nicolette graduated from Southern Methodist University in Dallas (Pony Up!) with a degree in Journalism and minors in French and Psychology. Nicolette spent her last three years of high school living in Paris, France. While living abroad, Nicolette caught the travel bug and is excited to explore all that the Gulf Coast has to offer. If you see her, tell her your favorite things to see and do!
