Nicole Agee loves waking up with eastern Iowa weekday mornings on KCRG-TV9.
Nicole is a native Iowan and an Emmy award-winning anchor and reporter.
She returned to her home state in 2009. The early shift was a change of pace after anchoring the evening news at KAAL-TV in Austin, Minnesota. Prior to that, Nicole was an anchor and reporter at KOMU-TV in Columbia, Missouri. She's a graduate of the University of Northern Iowa and received her Master's degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Missouri.
During her career, Nicole has covered major news events including the 35W bridge collapse, the 2008 Iowa Caucuses and the Republican National Convention in St. Paul. She also traveled to the Gulf Coast in the weeks following Hurricane Katrina to cover the Missouri Highway Patrol's relief efforts in Biloxi. She's tackled RAGBRAI from river to river three times, sharing stories of the ride along the way.
Nicole won an Emmy for her series, “Eyes on the Road,” which focused on the dangers of texting and driving. The series was later produced into a DVD that was distributed to every high school in Iowa. Nicole also co-anchored an Emmy award-winning morning newscast for winter weather coverage.
An active volunteer, Nicole supports several organizations. She serves on the Theatre Cedar Rapids Board of Directors and the steering committee for the annual JDRF Promise Gala. In addition, Nicole currently participates in events for the March of Dimes, American Heart Association, Mercy Medical Center, Go Cedar Rapids and JDRF. You may have seen her on stage as a performer for TCR and RHCR Theatre.
When she's not engrossed in the day's news, Nicole enjoys cooking, shoe shopping, road trips and attending local sporting events with her son, Jack, and her husband, Adam. The family recently welcomed a rescue dog, Jovi.
