Skyler Nichols is the Morning Anchor for Wake Up West Texas on Fox 15 and KIDY Fox News First. She is no stranger to the FOX family -- she was honored to launch the KXVA, now Fox 15 and KIDY evening news cast as the evening anchor in its inaugural year!
But Skyler’s career in broadcasting started in Odessa at CBS 7 as a fill-in weathercaster. After a short stint there, she moved to San Angelo, where she accepted a job as a weathercaster and reporter with KSAN-TV. Soon after, she accepted the evening anchor position with KIDY and KXVA.
Skyler graduated from Texas State University in San Marcus, where she earned her B.S. degree. Skyler’s roots are Texas strong, having grown up in the Hill Country in the small town of Mason.
While television is her first passion, Skyler finds joy in traveling; hanging out with her daughter, Blake; and good wine.
Skyler is also a realtor in San Angelo and enjoys working with the community.
She always knew she wanted to be a newscaster from a young age.
You can find Skyler every weekday mornings delivering the news on Wake Up West Texas, alongside Meteorologist Ricky Cody and Lauren Wolfe from 5:30 to 8:00 a.m. Connect with Skyler on social media via Facebook and on Twitter. And be sure to stop by and welcome Skyler back home!
