Giles and her CBS colleague, correspondent Erin Moriarty, have collaborated on two public-affairs radio series under the Giles and Moriarty banner, one for WPHT in Philadelphia and another for Greenstone Media. Both shows were produced at the facilities of the CBS Radio Network.
In 2017 Giles along with CBS News colleague Nancy Wyatt launch the popular podcast The Giles Files.
As of March 2020, Giles lives in Weehawken, New Jersey. During the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States, she self-isolated to avoid infection, and produced in "A brisk walk with Nancy Giles", which documented her walk around the town, in particular up the inclined block on which Weehawken High School is located, and up Boulevard East, across from which the view of the Manhattan skyline prompted her to reflect on her parents' emigration to the area 70 years earlier.
