Nick Ciletti joined ABC15 in July 2014 as an anchor and reporter.
Nick is excited to be back in Arizona. His first job on air was in Yuma, where he fell in love with the desert.
While in Yuma, Nick anchored both the morning and evening newscasts at KYMA. He also reported extensively from the field, at times crossing the border into Mexico. In 2010, Nick was nominated for an Emmy for his story on the aftermath of an earthquake in a small border town. He also won a group Associated Press Award for continuing earthquake coverage.
Nick was also the only local TV reporter on scene just hours after the Gabrielle Giffords shooting tragedy unfolded in Tucson.
After Yuma, Nick headed to WBBH in beautiful Fort Myers, Fla. where he anchored, reported, and even did the morning traffic report. In 2014, the Society of Professional Journalists in Florida nominated Nick for an award in spot news for a story he did about three teenagers who tragically died in a car accident.
Nick grew up outside Philadelphia, where much of his family still lives today.
For his college years, Nick headed south to the University of Miami where he double-majored in Broadcast Journalism and Spanish. He also studied abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Nick is fluent in Spanish and can speak a little Portuguese and Italian. He’s an avid traveler who’s always looking for his next big adventure — even if it’s in his own backyard.
Nick likes to be very active in his community. In both Yuma and Fort Myers, Nick was involved with The American Cancer Society, a cause that’s close to his heart. Nick is a pediatric cancer survivor and loves meeting other survivors.
