Before joining the Eyewitness News team, Josh was a general assignment reporter in Houston for KHOU 11 News-a CBS affiliate.
He spent more than three years reporting in the most populous city in Texas, covering a range of stories including the devastation and humanitarian response to Hurricane Harvey. Josh covered the Astros first World Series title in 2017 as well as Super Bowl LI and a Final Four. In 2015, he provided coverage to all of TEGNA's affiliates throughout the Southeast the night a gunman opened fire in a movie theater in Lafayette, Louisiana. Josh donned cowboy boots to report on the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and tossed beads into the crowd during Mardi Gras in Galveston.
Prior to Texas, Josh spent two years in the Nutmeg State as a reporter and fill-in anchor for WVIT, the NBC affiliate in Hartford, Connecticut. Josh was part of a Peabody Award winning team for its 2012 coverage of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School. In 2013, Josh also spent a week covering the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings. He extensively reported on transportation issues, focusing on Metro North-Josh was one of the first reporters on scene of the 2013 train derailment in Bridgeport that injured more than 70 people as well as the massive power failure in the Bronx that crippled train service from New York City to Stamford.
Josh began his career in television news at News 12 The Bronx and Brooklyn starting as a desk assistant and finishing his time there as the station's weekend anchor and lead reporter.
Josh was born and raised in New York City, where he still has family. But he's no stranger to North Carolina-Josh graduated cum laude from Duke University in 2009 with a minor in media policy and interned at another station in the Raleigh Durham market.
Josh lives in Durham and is excited to root on his Blue Devils up close and personal again. When he's not reporting, he likes to travel, play golf, listen to a variety of music, watch all kinds of sports, and solve at least one crossword puzzle a day.
