After he graduated college in 2005, he became a weekend news anchor for Renda Broadcasting's Affiliates in Punxsutawney, and after a year, would be promoted to News Director.
Josh was also the host of the WPXZ Morning Show, and also was the voice of the Punxsy Chucks Baseball and Softball teams, and the on-air voice for Punxsutawney Little League All-Star Baseball and Softball teams, and also covered festivities on Gobbler's Knob for Groundhog Day.
After six years, Josh came back to Indiana, and served as a reporter and a weekend news anchor. Josh also returned to Punxsutawney as the host of the WPXZ Morning Show before being promoted to News Director at Your Hometown Radio Stations.
Away from the mic, Josh loves cooking, watching old movies, listening to old-time radio programs, and Pittsburgh and IUP Sports.
