Joe is a Cedar Rapids native who is happy to be back at home after 2 years of working in Montana.
Joe joined the CBS 2/Fox 28 family as a news intern in 2013 and rejoined the team as a reporter in January 2016.
He graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in 2013 with a Major in Electronic Media and a Journalism Minor. He quickly began working at KRTV in Great Falls Montana. In Big Sky Country he covered a wide variety of issues across the state such as crime and courts as well as environmental issues and agriculture. Some of his most memorable stories were the wild fires and evacuations along the Rocky Mountain Front in the summer of 2015.
Now that Joe is covering his home turf he is excited to tell the stories of Eastern Iowa and the Corridor.
When he's not telling stories for the station he can be found outside hiking, biking and paddling.
