Nicole Strahan is an Australian journalist with more than two decades experience in the media as a television and print reporter. Most recently she was a Senior reporter and Producer for Network Ten news, based in Melbourne.
Nicole is perhaps best known for her work as Ten's US correspondent and bureau chief. During her two year stint, Nicole covered some of the most significant stories of the past decade, including the 2008 election and inauguration of US President Barack Obama and the death of Michael Jackson.
During her time as a Melbourne-based reporter with Ten, Nicole proved to be a versatile reporter covering a wide range of issues and breaking news stories, both in Australia and overseas. She was integral to the network's coverage of the Boxing Day tsunami, the second Bali bombing, court appearances of the Bali Nine, the Beaconsfield mine disaster and rescue and State and Federal election campaigns.
Her passion for journalism was ignited as child when she would discuss the latest news with her parents around the dinner table, usually with the 6pm TV news on in the background.
She started her career as a cadet reporter with Leader Newspapers, working her way up to senior reporter of the company's flagship publication.
Nicole's extensive knowledge of local issues and clear writing style saw her snapped up by The Australian newspaper. She spent two years covering state and federal politics, industrial relations, crime, education, health and business.
As well as living in the US, Nicole spent 12 months living in Germany where she studied German and a Bachelor of Arts (Majors in Sociology and Politics) via correspondence through Monash University.
Away from the cut and thrust of daily news, Nicole has had a lifelong commitment to health and fitness and works casually as a group fitness instructor.
