Joshua Short, a Chicago native, brings a unique level of experiences to our newsroom.
He's earned a Bachelor's degree in Broadcast Journalism from Columbia College Chicago. While there, he dabbled in radio, hosting two shows at an Arabic radio station (yes, he studied Arabic for 6 years). He's also earned multiple award nominations from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
As an intern in three different newsrooms, Joshua has covered some very big stories, including: Anti-Trump protests in Chicago, the NFL Draft in Grant Park and even traveled to Washington, D.C. to report on the 2017 Presidential Inauguration.
Joshua loves traveling, sightseeing and crime shows. He's also a big fan of reality TV, even scoring one-on-one interviews with TV personalities Jussie Smollett and Issa Rae while at Columbia.
With these unique experiences, he hopes to inform, confirm and educate through passionate storytelling and captivate viewers through his charismatic personality. Despite being only two hours from Chicago, Joshua considers South Bend his new home.
