This is Joel’s first experience in the Pacific Northwest. He moved to Oregon back in January from North Dakota. While there, he studied Mass Communication at NDSU and worked at stations in Grand Forks and Bismarck as a reporter, photojournalist and morning news anchor.
When he’s not working, you can find this accomplished chili chef busy at work in his garden, bargain hunting at garage sales, or traveling to towns all over the state in search of the finest cheeseburger. Joel enjoys hunting, fishing, reading, cooking and clam digging.
You can watch his travel series All in a Day’s Drive every Wednesday at 6 am, and Joel in the Garden every Thursday at 6 am on Newssource Today.
