General Assignment Managing Editor
Josh was born and raised in St. Louis (and for fellow St. Louisans, he went to Parkway North). After graduating from Mizzou and working in TV stations in Indiana and Washington, DC, Josh and his wife Shannon came back to Columbia, where they met and started along this crazy path. Before Newsy, Josh spent almost four years as a faculty member at the University of Missouri, where he perfected his "I'm not mad, I'm disappointed" speech. Shannon works for the university, and their black lab Bella works as a dog. When he's not at Newsy, he loves quoting Mean Girls or updating his Instagram @joshmeetsdogs.
