She spent only a few years in Springfield before her family moved to Cleveland, Ohio, where she attended Rocky River High School. She became interested in journalism there and ran the school newspaper with some friends, while also dreaming of becoming a popular actress and appearing in many plays. She was also a member of a band in which she was the lead vocalist and keyboardist.

Nina was smarter than most of her peers, and according to Wikipedia she enrolled in 1970 when she was only 14.

She later attended Strasberg Institute in California, where she studied acting and graduated in 1976 with a bachelor’s degree in theater.

She started her acting career in 1982 and appeared in the action-crime film “Sex Police‘, starring Wings Hauser and Season Hubley, and follows the story of a single mother turned prostitute who goes to work for the police to catch a pimp named Ramrod.

In 1993, she appeared in the comedy film “Reckless Kelly”, starring Yahoo Serious, Melora Hardin and Alexei Sayle, and which follows Kelly, an Australian outlaw, who gives the money he takes to the poor, pretending to be the Australian Robin Hood. One of Nina’s last appearances in movies before retiring was in the comedy musical film “I Crave Rock & Roll” directed and written by Carmen Santa Maria, starring Carl Ballantine and Tony Colitti, while also appearing in the episodic play “The Vagina Monologues” while touring the US in 2003.

When the MTV network began operating in 1981, Nina along with Alan Hunter, Martha Quinn, JJ Jackson and Mark Goodman were chosen to serve as their disc jockeys. She was with them for five years until she joined the entertainment TV news magazine “Entertainment Tonight” and became the host of their show “Rock Report”. Around the same time, she started hosting the music program “Solid Gold”, and appeared in several shows that aired on networks such as VH1, MSNBC, and The Discovery Channel.

She and Danny Sheridan, the late American musician, songwriter and actor, launched their own radio show “Nina Blackwood’s Absolutely 80’s” in 1999.
