Since November 2018, the business journalist Nicole Petallides has been a part of the on-air hosts for the OTT financial education TV channel TD Ameritrade Network. She reports from the NASDAQ Marketsite in New York. Prior to taking up her current job, the Greek-American had worked with a series of other high-profile business-themed media. Indeed, she just quit her job as the pioneer anchor of Fox Business Network (FBN). She has also worked with CNN and Bloomberg in the past. In this post, however, we are focusing on the family background of the money-talking media pro. We are also going to expose other relevant facts about her that you need to know.
She comes from a business-oriented family
Nicole Petallides is a business journalist and she displays a great sense of mastery whenever she appears before the cameras. But in case you are wondering where she got the profound business sense she constantly displays in front of the screen? Here’s what you need to know.

The beautiful Fox anchor was born into a comfortable and wealthy family in Queens, New York on September 20, 1971. Her parents were big-time entrepreneurs. For instance, her father, John C. Petallides is the owner of Amfax and Salesforce 911 which are telemarketing and promotions companies. He also founded and owns Parentreach which provides emergency messaging solutions to K-12 schools and districts although as a subsidiary of Amfax.
As for Nicole’s mother, Fannie Holliday, she founded Proini and The Greek American which are both Greek-language newspapers. In case you need to know, Nicole’s mother has been able to establish and run these Greek-language media because, not only is she a journalist, but she is also originally from Cyprus, thereby conferring on Nicole an American-Greek ancestry. We can also deduce from here where Nicole also picked her inclination to journalism.
The family influences that helped to make Nicole Petallides whom she is today is probably not limited to her parents. Instead, she reportedly has a brother who is a terrific writer. But his name is not known to us.
