Nico Pennisi


Nico Pennisi joined WRTV in October 2022.

He’s happy to start his mornings with you throughout the week on Good Morning Indiana — albeit with the help of two or three cups of coffee.

Nico comes to Indy from two hours up I-69 in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where he got his start in the industry at FOX 55. During his time in the Fort, he gained experience as an MMJ, weekend anchor and producer. His passion has always been telling the stories of people who often get overlooked.

Nico graduated summa cum laude from Stony Brook University in 2020, with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Theatre Arts. In college, he was president of the university’s premier co-ed a cappella group the Stony Brook Vocalists. Nico was born and raised in Long Island, NY, but he’s a (chosen) Hoosier by heart.

When Nico is not on your screen, you can catch him on stage. Nico loves performing — whether it be acting, singing, dancing or just making a fool of himself.

Nico is also passionate about his health and fitness. Working out, hiking, being outdoors. You may see him running around downtown from time to time.

He and his many plants are happy to call downtown Indy home.
