Our Team
Nicole Lapin Bio
Founder/CEO
Nicole Lapin is the founder and CEO of Nothing But Gold Productions, a
multimedia production company focused on creating accessible financial
content across various platforms. 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, most recently, CNBC.

Nicole is the former anchor of “Worldwide Exchange,” the only global show on CNBC, which airs in the United States, Europe and Asia. She reported live daily on breaking global financial news and geopolitics. Nicole was also regular contributor on MSNBC and served as a personal finance expert on NBC’s “Today Show,” with regular opinion pieces in the Huffington Post and USA Today.
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 CNN.com 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 death of Osama bin Laden, the crisis in Egypt, 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.

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. For her reporting, she has 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. Nicole also served as an ambassador for other youth-driven organizations, including Operation Smile and DoSomething. In 2011, Nicole launched her own charity, Lost Girls, to offer young women with gently-worn career attire and advice.

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.
