BIOGRAPHY:

Nikki Hauser joined the WITN team in July 2019 as a reporter.

Nikki was born in Cincinnati, OH and moved to Los Angeles, CA before high school. She then lived in D.C. and graduated from Georgetown University, where she studied psychology, government, and Spanish. She found her love for journalism after her first Video News Production class. She went on to intern for Dateline NBC, the investigative unit at KNBC in Los Angeles, and WRC in D.C.

Nikki now reports during the week and she is so excited to be working for WITN! She looks forward to getting to know Eastern Carolina and the people living here.

When she ​is not working for WITN, you can find her playing tennis, skiing, Facetiming her sister, or probably cracking dad jokes.
