Career Experience

In order to achieve such a high position in the media sphere that Wendi Nix can boast now, she had to go through a long and hard way, beginning with her internship and ending with a landing at the ESPN channel. At first, Wendi Nix became an intern at a local TV station where she gained her first work experience.

After spending several at the WDPE channel, Wendi Nix went on to work at the NESN regional TV station, the headquarters of which is located in Watertown, Massachusetts.

Following her success at a local and regional level, Wendi Nix was invited to join the Fox Sports Net.
