Nikki Rudd

Nikki joined the News10NBC team in May 2004. She came to Rochester from the NBC affiliate in Rochester, MN which is also a Channel 10. When she came to interview here, she stayed in room 1010 at the Hyatt. Management claims they didn’t arrange that. She says it must be fate!

Nikki was born in Detroit, Michigan but raised in Des Moines, Iowa. She’s also lived in Wisconsin and Minnesota. She graduated magna cum laude from Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa with a major in Communications Arts with an emphasis in Electronic Media. Go, Knights!

She now calls Livingston County home. She is married with two boys, a dog named Striker.

You can catch Nikki on News10NBC at 4 p.m., on Rochester’s only 7 p.m. newscast, and again with Brett Davidsen and First Alert Meteorologist Stacey Pensgen on News10NBC at 11 p.m..  She is tracking the truth through her Fact Check reporting.
