NICOLE LAPIN is one of the most respected young journalists today. The child of a former Nobel Prize nominee and a beauty queen, it is easy to see where Nicole gets her brains and her beauty. But after the death of her father at an early age, this first generation American needed to make her own name. She went on to create her niche as the youngest anchor ever on CNN and, now, CNBC.

Nicole currently anchors "Worldwide Exchange," the only global show on CNBC, which airs in the United States, Europe and Asia. She reports live daily on breaking global financial news and geopolitics. Recently, she was the first CNBC anchor to report on the killing of Osama bin Laden. She has anchored live coverage of the Japanese earthquake, the “Flash Crash” and the uprising in Egypt. During her first year at CNBC, Nicole broke the story of the imminent danger of state failure in her “States of Pain” series. Nicole also released “Made in America,” a broadcast and text series that looks at the patriotic renaissance and the impact on the US economy and global market.

In addition to anchoring “Worldwide Exchange,” Nicole is a regular contributor on MSNBC’s “Jansing & Co.” and “Morning Joe,” and serves as a personal finance expert on NBC’s “Today Show.” She also writes regular opinion pieces for the Huffington Post and USA Today, gaining acclaim for the correlation she drew between economic hardship and mental health issues following the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson, Arizona.

At 21, Nicole was tapped as one of the first anchors to launch CNN Pipeline. She served as a reporter for all of CNN's networks, including CNN/U.S., CNN Headline News and CNN International. With the idea that there are other young people like herself defying convention, Nicole launched a series called “Young People Who Rock.” Each week, she profiled a different person under 30, from community leaders to politicians and entrepreneurs. Her columns appeared on every week, with broadcast interviews to follow.

Utilizing her unique and conversational communication style, Nicole has made a name for herself anchoring breaking news coverage of the Israel-Hezbollah conflict, the Mumbai terror attacks, the assassination of former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, the Hudson River plane crash and the Virginia Tech shootings. During the election season, she anchored political coverage of the major presidential debates, conventions and results nights, including Super Tuesday and election night, and inauguration. During the 2008 campaign, she also authored a chapter in the book, Declare Yourself: Speak. Connect. Act. Vote. 50 Celebrated Americans Tell You Why.

In addition to anchoring, Nicole developed an investigative series about human trafficking entitled “Girls Not For Sale,” which received national attention from women’s groups and other activists. She also received a Genesis Award nomination from the Humane Society of the United States for her investigation of downer pigs in the food supply.

Nicole has reported on location on a wide range of topics from breaking weather news to Michael Jackson's memorial in Los Angeles to the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. She has interviewed celebrities, dignitaries and politicians, including California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who joined Nicole for a live 30-minute interview in the thick of the state's 2009 budget crisis. She also contributed to Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s “Paging Dr. Gupta,” covering young women with breast cancer and Middle East health reform.

Prior to CNN, Nicole worked as a business and technology reporter on the floor of major stock exchanges for First Business Network. She also paid her dues as an investigative reporter and local news anchor at three CBS affiliate stations across the country. Expanding on her previous work at the Center for Wrongful Convictions, Nicole reported live from San Quentin Prison during the execution of Stanley "Tookie" Williams. Her work included a series on possible wrongful convictions in California, a subject she first explored in Illinois with a group whose investigations led to a moratorium on executions in the state. For her reporting, she picked up accolades from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, the Association of Women Journalists and Society of Professional Journalists, and the Radio Television News Directors Association, among others. She was also honored with a "Power 30 under 30" Award.

Expanding her reach as a positive young figure, Nicole created a campaign called “Being Smart is Cool” in partnership with the Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation. She was appointed global ambassador for the charity and traveled on its behalf to inspire youth to care about issues in the news. Nicole currently serves as an ambassador for other youth-driven organizations, including Operation Smile and DoSomething.

Nicole studied European Union politics at L'Institut d'Études Politique de Paris. She graduated summa cum laude and as valedictorian of her class from the prestigious Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, also earning honors for a second major in political science.
