Nikola Junewicz

Anchor, Reporter

Nikola (yes-like the cough suppressant!) is thrilled to be back in Wisconsin, anchoring the morning news at the best station in Milwaukee!

She comes to FOX6 from WZTV in Nashville where she spent four years as Weekend Anchor, earning two Weekend Newscast Emmy Awards in 2019 and 2021.  As a reporter for the station, she covered the Christmas Day bombing, deadly March tornadoes, and George Floyd protests.  Her accountability stories focused on silenced accusations of corruption and harassment at Metro Police and investigating why the department wouldn’t equip officers with body cameras.  Nikola also closely tracked the state’s Covid-19 outbreak when it was deemed the worst in the world. 

While proud of her professional accomplishments at WZTV, she’s equally proud of her work in middle Tennessee as a volunteer.  Nikola helped launch the region’s first dance studio designed for individuals with special needs.  Nikola is blessed to be a Down syndrome sibling and is a big believer in contributing to the community she serves as a journalist.

Nikola is no stranger to America’s Dairyland, or its news.  Previously she worked as a Reporter at WBAY in Green Bay and as an Evening Anchor at WEAU in Eau Claire, filing reports on the Steven Avery murder case, 2012 Wisconsin gubernatorial recall election, and of course, the Green Bay Packers!  Her breaking news coverage has been awarded by the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association.

Nikola’s broadcasting journey began as a student at Cornell University, where she wrote and read the morning news at the campus radio station, WVBR 93.5 FM.  Later, she moved on to work at the local television station, WETM in Elmira.  As a History major, she developed research skills that continue to serve her well as an investigative journalist. 

A firm believer the coldest places have the warmest people, Nikola missed Wisconsin dearly while in Music City and jumped at the chance to come back.  A Chicago native, the Midwest will always be home sweet home. 

Anxious to get involved in her new home, Nikola continued her efforts to be a voice for inclusion when she moved to Milwaukee.  She proudly serves on the Board of Advisors for Best Buddies Wisconsin and emcees the organization’s annual gala.  She’s also deeply involved in Junior Achievement of Wisconsin and is a big supporter of its financial literacy programs. Every year you can find her hosting the "Wisconsin Business Hall of Fame Ceremony" and the "Young Entrepreneur LIVE Competition," a Shark Tank-style show celebrating the business pursuits of Wisconsin kids.

Most recently, Nikola got involved with Distinguished Young Women of Wisconsin, a non-profit that awards thousands of dollars in scholarships to high school girls.  She’s a firm believer in empowering women through education and mentorship.

If there’s a story you’d like her to cover or if you have a good restaurant recommendation, please don’t hesitate to reach out.  Nikola is admittedly a terrible cook, but loves to eat (especially, cheese)!
