  • The US Government: We're not going to make it federally mandatory for people to get paid a wage they can actually live off of
  • The US Government: If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day
  • The US Government: And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem
  • The US Government: In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free
  • The US Government: If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education
  • The US Government: Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable and white people
  • The US Government: And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job
  • The US Government: The parent who is working 16 hours a day

 Nicole Berlie
News Anchor 

Nichole Berlie anchors Today in St. Louis every weekday morning from 5-7 a.m.

Originally from Lincoln, Nebraska, Nichole earned a bachelor’s degree in broadcasting from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (Go Huskers!), with minors in mathematics, Spanish and English. She also earned a master’s degree in broadcast journalism from the Newhouse School of Journalism at Syracuse University (Go Orange!) in New York.

Nichole is no stranger to early mornings! She spent 5 years as a morning anchor at KETV in Omaha, Nebraska. She also spent time as a reporter in Omaha and Evansville, Indiana.

People often ask Nichole how she can stay so energized so early in the morning — she attributes her cheerfulness to large amounts of caffeine and a small amount of “crazy!”

In her spare time she enjoys exploring the St. Louis area, working out, reading, spending time with friends and family, and taking orders from the ruler of her house — her cat, Maddie.
