Joe joined WANE-TV in March of 2012 as the weekend sports anchor/reporter. He joins the station after serving as a sports reporter/anchor for KFYR-TV (NBC) in Bismarck, North Dakota for two years.

While in Bismarck, Joe was honored by the Northwest Broadcast News Association for his reporting. Prior to that, Joe worked as the radio play-by-play voice for the New Jersey Jackals, a minor league baseball team located in northern New Jersey.

A native of Tenafly, New Jersey, Joe graduated from the Phillip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland where he served as the sports director of the campus radio station. His family is located primarily in the Northeast, but Joe has enjoyed getting to experienced different parts of the country and is thrilled to be in the Summit City.

When not at work, Joe continues to get his fill of sports, whether playing them or watching them. He is an avid reader, ardent supporter of all things NBA related and enjoys traveling. More than anything though, Joe loves to tell a good sports story, so feel free to email him if you have one!
