Josh Roberson

Josh Roberson is born and raised in Shreveport, Louisiana. After starting as an intern and overnight photographer/editor at a local station in his hometown, Josh realized he had a love for hard hitting news and began practicing reporting in front of the camera. Josh got his first reporter job in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina where he participated in award winning coverage of Hurricane Matthew, a category 4 hurricane that swept up the East Coast in 2016. He then got the opportunity to move back to his hometown and became the morning reporter for KSLA in Shreveport. After a year and a half that included launching a state of the art Alert Center and part time anchoring, Josh got the break he wanted by becoming part of the best news team in New Orleans in WVUE Fox 8. As a kid, it was always Josh’s dream to live in NOLA and be a part of the vibrant city, the culture, and of course the food. In his spare time, Josh enjoys spending time with friends outdoors, weight lifting, yoga, checking out the local restaurants, and rooting for the New Orleans Pelicans. He’s excited now have the opportunity to anchor and help launch the brand new weekend morning show!
