It’s the NEW Afternoon Unwind with Bruce & Nichole!

Whether it’s been a great day or one of THOSE days, Bruce Otto and Nichole Parada are here to help you decompress on your drive home with laughter, inspiration, and of course lots of uplifting music!

My family and I moved to Omaha from Illinois in late 2019. I am married to Courtney, and we have 3 teenagers: Maggie, Caroline, and Charlie. Sherman, our lovable 90-pound golden doodle, is also part of the family and keeps us laughing.

One other thing you should know about me is that I love the St. Louis Cardinals … but I’ll try not to mention them too often. (Go Cards!) I’m so excited for Nichole to join me on the Afternoon Unwind, and we both look forward to spending time with you each weekday afternoon!


I’m Nichole! Raised in Nebraska until I was thirteen years old, I have always considered the Heartland my home, despite moving all around the country as part of a military family. My husband, Patrick and I have four precious and hilarious children (two boys and two girls), a black lab named Lucy, and 10 rambunctious chickens!

I. Love. Jesus. He’s my best friend and the One who has rescued, redeemed, and restored me. I’ll spend my whole life sharing what He has done for me and for you. YOU ARE LOVED.

Also, I am a huge fan of Dolly Parton, FUN, The Great British Baking Show, espresso, art and painting, producing and writing music, and all things PUERTO RICAN—I am a proud Latina. We are going to have so much fun together on your drive home!

Love God, Love People!
