Nick Coit

Nick Coit spends his days chasing around local athletes forgreat games, fun interviews, and interesting stories. Nick started his travelsaround Rhode Island in February 2014, joining the legendary Ken Bell as ABC6Weekend Sports Anchor/Weekday Sports Reporter.


A native of Plymouth, Mass, home of "The Rock" and "TheMayflower," Nick developed the bright idea of combining two of his passions,sports and entertainment, into one at Plymouth North High School. He playedfour years on the baseball field for the Blue Eagles. He also stood out on thestage, playing the lead role of "Tevye" in FiddlerOn The Roof his senior year, among other roles. So when he was thinkingabout what he wanted to do with his life, Nick thought being a "Sports Guy" wasthe perfect combination of his talents.


That led Nick to Emerson College in Boston, where hegraduated with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. He continued his baseballcareer for the Lions. He also got heavily involved on campus, becoming a"starter" for Emerson Independent Video, WEBN, ETIN, and more! He was also(long story, ask him sometime!) a member of the Boston College Marching Band,playing his saxophone every Saturday in support of the Eagles.

After graduating in May 2011, Nick was lucky enough to joinFOX 25 in Boston as a Freelance Sports Producer. The expectations, right away,were high. It was like being a college quarterback drafted in the first round!Within a month, Nick was a major part of covering the Bruins run to the 2011Stanley Cup.

After seven months learning from the best in Boston, Nickmoved north to Bangor, Maine, beginning a two-year journey with WABI TV5 as aSports Anchor/Reporter. Nick was able to not only live out his dream of beingon the air, but he was also able to develop a new passion for local sports.Through UMaine hockey games at Alfond Arena to the high school basketballtournament at the Bangor Auditorium, Nick gained a true understanding of theimportance of sports and the stories behind the games to local communities.

Nick's excited to be covering sports closer to home. He'salso thrilled to have the opportunity to explore what Rhode Island has tooffer. If you've got a place Nick can sprint to for a story, feel free to emailhim at You can also followNick on Twitter: @NickCoit.
