"What time do you wake up?"

That's the question CBS News 8 This Morning and 11am co-anchor Nichelle Medina is asked most often by viewers (2:30 am, in case you're wondering).

Nichelle joined the CBS News 8 team in March 2001. She's covered San Diego County's biggest stories including the 2003 wildfires and was honored with the Emmy Award ® for her work during the 2007 San Diego County wildfires. Most recently, she garnered another Emmy for Breaking News coverage of the deadly military jet crash in University City.

Previously, Nichelle was the Morning/Noon Anchor at KGPE-TV in Fresno. She helped launch a successful community service award recognizing the achievements of everyday heroes.

Her broadcast career began at KGNS-TV in Laredo, Texas where Nichelle learned it all... from producing, reporting to anchoring.

Here at CBS News 8, Nichelle is also involved in a number of community organizations and charities. She's a proud military wife, her husband is a pilot in the Marine Corps. Her favorite story so far: Getting to fly with the Blue Angels (she gets nauseous just thinking about it)!

Nichelle is also a huge animal lover and loves hanging out with her dogs Joey and Sady.
