Nolan started his career in radio on 24 March 1974 (while still at High School) working as a freelance producer for the London Broadcasting Company (LBC), a Newstalk radio station in London. Nolan graduated with an honours degree in Communications before moving to New Zealand with his Auckland-born wife. Nolan then spent seven years with the Broadcasting Corporation of New Zealand, working in radio and television as a presenter of music and entertainment programmes, news and current affairs and with a heavy emphasis on radio commercial and promotions production.
During this period, Nolan also helped create New Zealand's number one-rating NewstalkZB radio network, was a television continuity announcer with New Zealand's TV ONE, hosted a number of television specials and was appointed to the New Zealand Film Censorship Board of Review. In 1987 he co-presented the Listener Gofta Awards with Leeza Gibbons.
A six-month assignment followed, as Australia's Hoyts Radio Network London News Correspondent. A holiday stopover in Western Australia, saw Nolan hired to read morning news on Perth's Channel 7 for two years, at the same time starting his breakfast news-anchoring role at 6KY (now MIX 94.5). Nic also read news for Perth's Channel 9.
