Nikki DeMentri is a reporter with WRTV.
Originally from a small town in New Jersey, Nikki is thrilled to move to the Midwest and join the team in December 2020. She’s excited and eager to share the stories of neighbors here in Central Indiana.
Before heading to Indy, Nikki was a reporter and fill-in anchor with sister station WKBW-TV in Buffalo, N.Y. for more than two years.
It was there Nikki covered stories all across Western New York and occasionally in Canada from politics to development and everything in between. While in Western New York, Nikki served as a Make A Wish Wish Hero and on the board of Second Generation Theatre Company.
Growing up, Nikki trained in classical ballet and spent much of her childhood dancing with a youth ballet company. The dance studio is where she first fell in love with storytelling.
Nikki is also a proud graduate of Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. Go Orange!
Whenever she’s not in the newsroom, it’s a safe bet you can find her in a dance class, playing with her puppy, reading, or exploring new restaurants.
