Josh Conner is a North Carolina native who joined Spectrum News 1 in 2019 as an intern while attending UNC. 

He landed his first job as a reporter with Spectrum News in Albany, N.Y., where he spent a year. He is thrilled to be back in his home state reporting from Raleigh and telling amazing stories. 

In upstate New York, one of Josh’s proudest accomplishments is his New York Emmy nomination. He says that honor made all the hard work and preparation worth it.

Outside of work, Josh is an avid sports fan, pulling for his Tar Heels and various other favorite teams. You may also find him on top of the closest mountain, as he’s an avid hiker who grew up climbing the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Josh says he strives to live every day in a way that he would find interesting to report.
