Nina Sparano


Senior Reporter

Nina Sparano is a senior reporter on NBC26. Nina joined NBC26 in January of 2019.

Nina has more than 10 years of experience behind the anchor desk and most recently as a reporter in Denver, Colorado.

Nina grew up in the Cleveland suburb of Solon, Ohio and graduated with a degree in Broadcast Communications from the University of Toledo. Her first job was as a morning anchor and at KPAX-TV in Missoula, Montana, then on to anchoring weekends at KRDO-TV in Colorado Springs where she was quickly promoted to anchoring weekday evening newscasts. In Denver, Nina was the technology reporter and fill-in anchor at KDVR and later as a reporter for the greater Denver area as well as northern Colorado for KCNC-TV in Denver.

Throughout her years in the business Nina has covered some of the nation’s most gripping stories from school and church shootings to wildfires and the one-thousand year flood that devastated much of northern, central and southern Colorado. Along the way Nina has taken home multiple awards for spot news, specialty reporting and anchoring.

In 2014 Nina took a step back from news to raise her two young children and along the way moved her family to Northern Colorado, Louisiana and now Wisconsin.

Nina says she feels honored to be welcomed back into television news community and has finally found her home here at NBC26 and northeastern Wisconsin.

When she’s not reporting, Nina loves to cook, spend time with her husband and two young girls, fishing, taking her kids to the local library, hanging out with friends and squeezing in a boot-camp class at the YMCA whenever possible.
