Nuber graduated from Ohio State University and was a lieutenant in the U.S. Army from 1971 to 1974. In the late 1970s, he was an advertising account executive for WTHR Channel 13 in Indianapolis, IN. During his tenure at WTHR, Nuber met sportscaster Paul Page, which led to a career in broadcasting.
In 1984, Nuber helped start SpeedWeek on ESPN, a weekly auto racing news program. He co-hosted the show until 1989. During his years with the network, he also announced Formula One and Thursday night "Thunder" USAC events.
Nuber was instrumental in bringing Wynn's sponsorship into the ASA AC Delco Series during the early 1990s while working with TNN. Before his death, he managed every aspect of the Wynn's Racing Program.
On June 8, 2000, Nuber was found dead at the age of 51 in his Indianapolis home by local police who received a call from family members that had not heard from him in several days. He died of a cerebral hemorrhage or stroke while working on his computer.
Instead of flowers at his funeral, it was asked that donations be made to the Rich Vogler Scholarship Fund.
