Nikki Kay joins the KFOR-TV sports department as the team’s newest sports reporter.
Born and raised in Santa Barbara, California, Nikki graduated from UCLA in 2013, Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies.
Although she was raised a Los Angeles Lakers fan during the Kobe Bryant era, she will agree that Michael Jordan is the greatest of all time.
Prior to arriving in OKC, Nikki worked in Idaho and then North Carolina, where she covered teams like the Boise State Broncos and North Carolina Tarheels. She’s stoked for college football season in Oklahoma, and can’t wait to get a taste of the Bedlam rivalry!
With experience hosting red carpet events in Los Angeles, Nikki has interviewed athletes like Troy Aikman, Joe Montana, John Salley, and Bill Walton to name a few. Some of her favorite events to host every year include the California Sports Hall of Fame and the Jim Mora Celebrity Golf Classic.
Growing up on the sands of southern California and spending summers as a beach lifeguard, Nikki loves to expand her storytelling to extreme sports and the outdoors. She has skied with the world class Sun Valley Ski Patrol, competed in an Olympic distance triathlon, and even raced NASCAR.
