Josh was bit by the weather bug while growing up in Wichita, Kansas. He graduated with a bachelor's degree in Meteorological Studies and a minor in Broadcast Communications from Metropolitan State University of Denver in spring of 2018. While Josh was in school, he worked as a weather producer and social media weather forecaster for WeatherNation TV based out of Denver, Colorado for nearly three years. Hurricanes, floods, fires, tornadoes and blizzards were a constant topic of coverage when forecasting for the entire country. When not working on our local forcast, he enjoys discovering the area through hiking and photography.
