Nick Proto

Born and raised outside of Philadelphia, Nick moved down south for school. He went to the University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks) where he studied broadcast journalism with a minor in sports management.

Nick's done just about every role in the newsroom. He started as a multimedia journalist, covering severe weather, elections, and everything in between. He did some weekend anchoring for a year or so before taking over as Sports Director at the end of 2021.

As Sports Director, Nick got to cover some of the biggest sporting events in the world. He's been to the Masters, the World Series, and got to cover Georgia winning the National Championship in Indianapolis in 2022.

He had an itch to get back to the anchor desk, and joined the News 12 Morning team in July of 2022.

When he's not at work, Nick is probably on the golf course. He picked up the clubs right before the pandemic and hasn't put them down since. An avid New York sports fan, Nick is always keeping tabs on his teams (Giants, Yankees, Knicks, Rangers) even from 700 miles away.
