Programming alert: How to rescan your TV to keep watching JOEtv with your antenna

I am thrilled to be working at Q13 News.

Moving back to the amazing people and unrivaled beauty of the Pacific Northwest is a dream come true.

I grew up in Longview, Wash., and lived in the South Sound for several years before beginning my broadcasting career in Reno, Nev., as a photojournalist. I then moved more than 2,000 miles away to Greensboro, N.C., where my nearly 10-year long stint in the Deep South began.

After almost 7 years working as a photojournalist and reporter in Atlanta, I packed up my life and returned to my home state of Washington.

I love coffee, beer and sandwiches. I live in Seattle with my awesome dog.
