• Follow me on:

Nice to meet you, I joined the CW33 team in November 2017 to escape the cold, and of course to follow my dream to tell community stories that make a difference.

Before moving to Dallas, I was working at the NBC/CBS affiliate in Fargo, North Dakota as a Crime and Safety Multi-Media Journalist. I covered some major murder cases, as well as investigated stories that brought resolution for victims.

I graduated from North Dakota State University, you know, the football team that often goes to Frisco and wins national championship after national championship. GO BISON!

I’m proud to say I was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota! The land of 10,000 lakes and my beautiful family that taught me the importance of community. I enjoy cooking, eating, fitness, shooting video and photography. I love that our station allows us to bring a creative element into telling the stories that belong to you, the people of Texas.

Got a story? I’d be honored to tell it, send me an email at nicole.johnson@cw33.com, or follow me on social media.
