Josh grew up in the small berg of Arthur, Il where the Amish outnumber the town’s residents roughly three to one. In fact, at last count, Josh has 54 first-cousins who are Amish. True story.
Knowing at an early age he wanted to go somewhere warm, Josh left for the University of Alabama following high school graduation. He was prepared for the broadcasting school, but not the humidity. Somehow, Josh managed to survive the swelter of Dixie and left with a degree in broadcast journalism, and along with it, four years of television experience.
Josh then lived in Los Angeles for five years where he reported for various outlets, performed musically and theatrically and served as a youth director for his church before getting back into broadcast news.
