Nanci Wudel graduated from Brigham Young University with a bachelor's degree in journalism studies in 1969. Her work experience as a freelance journalist spans print to broadcast, public relations to video production and film directing to theater.
Wudel has appeared in national commercials, and is the spokesperson on a nationally airing infomercial. She has also found a creative way to use the interviewing skills she honed at BYU: she judges state pageants for the Miss America organization.
She and her husband live in Mesa, Arizona. They have four children and 12 grandchildren.
