Liz Nichols joined WLFI in June 2011 as an anchor and reporter. She grew up in Greenwood, Ind., and is a Hoosier girl through and through. She's happy to call Lafayette home where she lives with her husband, daughter and "son" (a Siberian Husky named Balto).
Liz began her career as a general assignment reporter in Terre Haute at WTHI. While there, she was honored with first place from the Society of Professional Journalists for "Best General News Story." She's covered tornadoes, floods and earthquakes as well as the largest deployment of the Indiana National Guard in 2008. She also had the privilege to interview President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama ahead of Indiana's primary election. Later that year, Liz moved on to be a reporter, weekend anchor and weekend producer at WFIE in Evansville, Indiana.
In 2009, Liz worked for Fox59 News in Indianapolis where she wore many hats around the newsroom: first as a news writer/associate producer and later as an interactive content producer for Fox59.com and also provided traffic reports for "First at Four."
Liz first and foremost considers herself a journalist who tries her best every day to bring you the "News from Where You Live."
In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her family, watching Will Ferrell movies and cheering on Purdue (especially in basketball, her favorite sport - Boiler Up!).
Inventions were built by Purdue mechanical engineering students for a final class project.
