NEKIA NICHELLE is an entertainment/lifestyle reporter + expert, TV host, and pop culture commentator --- who serves up a vivacious personality packed with humor, integrity & savviness which has been featured on TV ONE, TMZ, and ABC/FOX/NBC/CBS affiliates. The Chicago native's self-run YouTube channel (NekiaNichelle) that highlights everything entertainment & lifestyle boasts 3MIL+ views, and counting.
Nekia started out by trying to climb the journalism ladder—only to find she hit a dead end. Nekia persevered and built her own platform. She was an executive producer & co-host of a local entertainment show, Flair TV, in a Top 3 market which gave artists such as Nelly, Robin Thicke, Tia Mowry, Newt Gingrich, and Queen Latifah a positive platform to talk about their careers, life and more.
Nekia has a vivacious and infectious personality that really knows how to captivate audiences which eventually lead her to working in radio as an on-air Traffic Reporter for Chicago’s top stations, after spending four years as the producer, host, and writer of Flair TV.
Before deciding to join iHeart Media, she had already made a name for herself covering star-studded red carpets, making constant on-air TV appearances, and hosting different events. That led to her becoming a morning news anchor in Northern Illinois and leaving radio.
As she was embarking on this new journey, she discovered that she was not living in her purpose.
Nekia found it more fulfilling to remove herself from the 9-5 scene and create digital content. Some call it crazy, but for her, it’s all about taking risks and living out her passion….and nothing lights her up more than empowering others to chase their wildest dreams, while she does the exact same.
For over 10+ years, Nekia has contributed digital content to Chicagonow.com, (an online publication powered by The Chicago Tribune), has served as a spokesperson for many brands, and provided red carpet coverage.
Nekia is all about using her platform to motivate and empower women to live their best lives, with substance & style.
She has been featured in magazines such as Rolling Out & N’Digo, as well as, on WGN Radio, WVON & Power 92.
She’s has appeared on national and local TV shows as a guest host, correspondent, and expert; mainly, TV One’s Fatal Attraction. Her expertise has been featured on TMZ LIVE, WCIU, CBS 2 Chicago, FOX 32 Chicago, Good Day Chicago, ABC 7 Chicago, and CLTV’s Garrard McClendon Live.
