Since November 2018, business journalist Nicole Petallides has been one of the on-air presenters of the OTT television channel TD Ameritrade Network for financial education. She reports from the NASDAQ market site in New York. Before the Greek-American began her current job, she had worked with some other high-profile business media. She just quit her job as a pioneer moderator of the Fox Business Network (FBN). She has also worked with CNN and Bloomberg in the past. In this article, however, we focus on the family background of the money-hungry media professionals. We will also uncover other relevant facts about them that you need to know.
She comes from a business-oriented family
Nicole Petallides is a business journalist, and she shows a great sense of mastery whenever she steps in front of the cameras. But in case you’re wondering where she gets that keen business sense she constantly shows in front of the screen? Here’s what you need to know. Aside from her training as a business journalist, her interest in business and all other money-making activities and analysis during her formative years must have been taken over by her family.
The beautiful Fox anchorwoman was born on September 20, 1971, in Queens, New York, into a comfortable and wealthy family. Her parents were big entrepreneurs. Her father, John C. Petallides, for example, owns Amfax and Salesforce 911, which are telemarketing and advertising companies. He also founded and owns Parentreach, which provides emergency messaging solutions to K-12 schools and districts, but as a subsidiary of Amfax.
As for Nicole’s mother, Fannie Holliday, she founded Proini and The Greek American, both Greek language newspapers. In case you need to know, Nicole’s mother was able to create and run these Greek-language media because, in addition to being a journalist, she is also originally from Cyprus, which gives Nicole an American-Greek background. We can also deduce from this where Nicole also discovered her inclination for journalism.
The family influences that contributed to Nicole Petallides becoming the woman she is today are probably not limited to her parents. Instead, she supposedly has a brother who is an outstanding writer. His name is not known to us, however.
Her formal educational background
Nicole Petallides attended and graduated from Buckley Country Day School in 1985. After her high school education, she went to the American University where she graduated in 1993. As an active student, she was not only interested in academics. Her records show that she played in football positions such as center-forward and also as a goalkeeper.
After finishing school Nicole Petallides went straight into the broadcasting business. She first worked for the Fox News morning show Good Day New York. She also worked as a segment producer for Jones Television. Nicole Petallides has worked for top national and international programs such as The Wall Street Journal Report, Asian Business News and European Business News.
Nicole has worked for leading media houses such as CNBC, News 12 Long Island, CNN, Bloomberg, and Fox. For CNBC she worked as a financial researcher at the New York Stock Exchange. After she left, Nicole took a job as a reporter and presenter at Bloomberg TV. She was the reporter for shows like Bloomberg Business Report and Bloomberg Market Update. From there she moved to Fox, where she currently works.
On 15 October 2007, the Fox Business Network was launched. Nicole Petallides and Jenna Lee made history as the first two presenters to go on air through the network. Then, in November 2018, she left Fox Business Network to join TD Ameritrade Network, as mentioned above.
Nicole is a well-known hard worker who gives her best for her work. For this obvious reason, the beautiful media personality has been serially honored with various national and international awards.
The business journalist is married with two kids
Nicole Petallides is the wife and mother of two children. She married Nicholas Tsiolas on 9 May 1998. The couple reportedly met on a blind date arranged by a mutual friend. They liked each other and dated for several years before they entered into marriage.
On their wedding day, the bride walked down the aisle with her father and stepfather. The wedding was presided over by Archbishop Spyridon, the Greek Orthodox Primate of the United States. The wedding ceremony took place at the Greek Orthodox shrine church of St. Nicholas in Flushing, Queens. Despite their high-class background, the couple, who have been married for nearly two decades, chose a quiet and unobtrusive ceremony.
Dr. Nicholas Tsiolas is a prosthetist based in Manhattan, New York. His parents are Helen and Iraklis Tsiolas, who also lives in Bayside, Queens. Eraklis worked as a furrier in Manhattan before his retirement. Dr. Nicholas himself is a graduate of the State University of New York in Albany. He received his degree in dentistry from Columbia University and currently works as a general dentist and prosthodontist at Gramercy Park Dental in New York.
Nicole and Nicholas have two sons whose names and pictures are withheld from the media. The happy couple has kept a low profile since the beginning of their marriage. Nicole is careful to hide her family’s true identity behind the lenses when she publishes pictures of fun family moments in social media.
As a businesswoman with a family, Nicole admits that her reality was not perfect. Nevertheless, she makes time for her husband and children, whom she describes as the most valued people in the world.
