Josh Roberson

Josh Roberson was born and raised in Shreveport, Louisiana. He received his college degree in Telecommunications from Bossier Parish Community College while working in the oil field. After accepting an internship at a local news station, Josh spent two years as a photographer before trying his hand at reporting the news. Here, he found his calling. In 2015, Josh was hired to be the nightside reporter in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. There, he developed a passion for breaking news stories, including award winning coverage of Hurricane Matthew, a Category 5 that swept the East Coast in 2016. A short time later, he jumped at the opportunity to be the morning reporter at KSLA News 12 in his hometown of Shreveport. During that time, Josh also covered Hurricane Harvey down in South Louisiana. After taking over the First Alert Center and doing some anchoring, Josh set his focus on his favorite city of New Orleans. After falling in love with the sights, sounds, and tastes of the Big Easy from a young age, Josh knew it was eventually the place he would call home. In his free time, Josh enjoys spending time with friends, going to the movies, being outdoors and eating good food. A competitive wrestler in high school, Josh likes to stay active through hiking, running, yoga, and lifting weights. He’s also a diehard New Orleans Pelicans fan. Although sadly, he is not a member of the Who Dat Nation.
