Live Doppler 10 Meteorologist/Reporter
Josh Poland says he is more than excited to return to Columbus and join the station he grew up watching.
Poland was born in Pittsburgh, but was raised on the east side of Columbus, attending Liberty Christian Academy.
After graduating Summa Cum Laude from Ohio University, studying both meteorology and journalism, Josh landed his first TV job at WLIO in Lima, Ohio.
Poland did everything in Lima, from forecasting to reporting to anchoring and producing. He received several awards for his work there, including Best Weather (Associated Press, small market), Best Reporter in Ohio (AP, small market) and Best Investigative Report (AP, small market).
Josh said that while handling several positions in Lima was fun, he felt ready for a new challenge and headed to KRDO in Colorado Springs in 2008.
He said that the wild weather in Colorado (winter weather advisories and tornado warnings on the same day made him a more well-rounded forecaster, but the desire for him to return to his Buckeye roots was too strong to pass up.
Josh will now be using his forecasting skills for the Doppler 10 team weekend mornings.
