Sidorowicz J icon

Josh Sidorowicz joined the FOX 17 team in July 2014.
Before making the move to the west side of the state, Sidorowicz was a reporter at WILX-TV News 10, the NBC affiliate and number one station in Lansing, Mich., where he covered state politics and his alma mater Michigan State University. He also regularly joined viewers on the weekend, filling in to anchor both the station’s early morning and evening newscasts.

Sidorowicz graduated from MSU with a degree in both journalism and political science. While attending school he interned with the university’s student newspaper, the State News, and with the local cable news station HOM-TV. He also had stints in Detroit with both Crain’s Detroit Business and Automotive News trade publications.

He’s won two Emmy Awards at the Michigan collegiate level, one for ‘best newscast’ earned by the team of students behind MSU’s student newscast ‘Focal Point’ and the other for his anchoring while on that newscast. Sidorowicz has also been recognized with several first and second place distinctions from the Society of Professional Journalists.

Originally from the Detroit area, coming to the west side of the state was a new endeavor for Sidorowicz, but one he was excited to dive into. He’s looking forward to getting to know West Michigan viewers and telling their stories.
