Josh came to ABC7 from ABC News in New York, where he worked as a reporter and field producer for six years. Most recently, Josh spent 18 months on the 2016 campaign trail, first based in Iowa for the caucus and then part of the ABC News team following Hillary Clinton's campaign. While at ABC, Josh also covered the 2012 presidential election and breaking news stories including the Boston Marathon terror attack and the Newtown school shooting.

Josh is thrilled to be back home in Los Angeles, a city he has so much passion for whether he is exploring and eating his way through every neighborhood or cheering on his beloved Dodgers/Lakers.
