Bob is a Veteran and a former television news anchor with more than 40 years of experience in the broadcast news industry.  He ended his career in August of 2001 at KPRC-TV (NBC) in Houston to join his wife, Arita, in the operation of her commercial printing company, Nicholas Earth Printing. During those years in broadcasting, Bob was a “first” on two fronts; first African American television news reporter in the south at WSOC-TV in Charlotte, NC. That’s where he was born and raised as Marvin Nicholas. His first name changed to Bob because his boss thought it was easier to remember for broadcasting. Bob is also the first African American television news anchor in HoustonTX at KHOU-TV (CBS) in 1971.

Bob’s extensive broadcast background gave him years of experience in building relationships with corporate executives, and learning the importance of networking with them. He has attended numerous professional workshops over the years on how to leverage his relationships for effective marketing. He says his military service in the US Army gave him the discipline he uses today in setting goals for the company. His wife recently relinquished control and ownership of Nicholas Earth Printing to Bob after undergoing multiple brain operations, making it impossible for her to run day to day operations.

 Bob is also dedicated to civic service. He served on the boards of the Greater Houston Partnership, Strake Foundation, Crime Stoppers, Boy Scouts of America and the Houston Visitors & Convention Bureau.

The Nicholas’ have 4 daughters, 4 grandchildren, and are members of The Fort Bend Church in Sugar Land, Texas.
