Joe grew-up in Michigan and first got interested in weather early in middle
school. “I went to bed one night during a school week after watching the
weather forecast. The weather people called for snow flurries that night.
When I woke-up the next morning we had about twenty inches of snow on
the ground, and needless to say no school. I couldn’t’ figure out how they
could have been that wrong”. That put him on a course to be a meteorologist.
Joe went to Central Michigan University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science
in meteorology. Before coming to Fox 17 he worked at WZZM 13 in Grand Rapids
and WILX TV 10 in Lansing. Prior to television Joe worked for the National Weather
Service in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Fort Worth, Texas and Anchorage, Alaska.
When he’s not working, Joe enjoys sports, especially football and spending time
with the family.
