Nikki joined the news team at the NBC affiliate in Phoenix anchoring and hosting a two-hour weekend morning show. Nikki also reported on daily news as well as feature entertainment stories. Some of her most memorable stories include one-on-one interviews with music legend Joe Cocker and President Jimmy Carter. The youngest of six children, Nikki has always embraced her family’s heritage. Three of her grandparents immigrated to the United States from Mexico and Puerto Rico seeking the American dream. She learned to speak Spanish from her grandparents and by studying abroad in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. Since her start in the television industry 10 years ago, Nikki always dreamed of creating a show that focused on the positive contributions of Latinos in mainstream America and LaFusion became a reality. “You don’t have to be Hispanic to enjoy LaFusion,” Hernandez Cunningham explains. “What’s great about our show is that it will inform and entertain anyone, even though it is a Latin- themed show.” When you watch LaFusion you will truly enjoy Nikki’s fun-loving, enthusiastic nature.
