Nicole Brewer makes the news much easier to watch. She could tell us the world were about to end and we'd smile and just keep staring with our mouths agape. Brewer is part of the CBS 3 morning news in Philadelphia.

A former Miss Pennsylvania, Nicole competed in the Miss America pageant in 2006, and made it to the top ten. Before her beauty pageant days, the TV personality attended college in PA and graduated magna cum laude. Besides being an on-air reporter, Brewer contributes to the CBS 3 news website and Wake Up News on The CW in Philly.

Nicole also contributes time to those in need -- she's a volunteer for the Big Brothers Big Sisters and hosted an award show for some needy geeks in Philly.
