Josh is a life long resident of Northeast Ohio. He has always been active in the church and community being the son of a pastor. Even as a kid he took an interest in radio, recording homemade radio shows with his family and friends (still has the cassettes). He grew up in North Lima, Ohio and graduated from South Range High School where he participated in football, band, speech and debate, and the drama department - where he was a 3 time state qualifier for the Ohio State speech and debate tournament in humorous interpretation. Then he came to Cleveland to attend Baldwin-Wallace College where he majored in broadcast communications. The college radio station was one of the first things he involved himself in, and that’s where he spent most of his time at the WBWC studios. He also started and hosted a positive rock radio program that continued for 10 years even after graduating. In his senior year, The Fish signed on the air and he sent in a demo tape. He didn’t get the job on the air but he did get hired with Salem Communications as a part-time board operator. In the almost 10 years Josh has been with the company he was the morning host on 1220 AM WHKW, hosted the Positive Rock Show on 1220, worked in the Fish promotions department, hosted evenings, overnights, and was the Music Director and Afternoon Drive host. After a year off, Josh came back to The Fish and can now be heard everyday from 10am-3pm as well as being Music Director.
Josh currently lives in Alliance with his wife Abby, and two children. Josh co-facilitates the Men's ministry at church. He enjoys running... especially trail running, cycling, hiking, camping, and fly fishing with his dad and brother. Josh has also been a DJ for weddings for the past 12 years. If you would like to have Josh at your next event send him an email. Josh LOVES coffee! Okay, he may be a little bit of a coffee nut since he roasts his own beans. Josh is also an avid tea drinker and you can usually see him in the studio with various contraptions to make it.
