Josh Shelton joined the NewsWatch 12 team in May 2019.
Josh was born in Alexandria, Virginia and lived there his whole life before moving away for college. He attended Ball State University for four years, where he earned a double major in journalism and telecommunications and minored in history.
Josh’s passion for sports broadcasting dates back to when he was 12 and took the journalism merit badge en route to earning the Eagle Scout award. Then after donning a head set in the Nationals press box, he knew what he wanted to be.
Josh has covered sports around the world, doing play-by-play for the DC Grays, covering curling and luge at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea and reporting on high school sports around Muncie, Indiana.
Josh is the oldest of two. His younger brother attends Virginia Tech and studies finance and computer science. His mom is a sales manager for one of the largest private companies in the nation and his dad has been a PGA golf professional for over 20 years.
When Josh gets some free time you can find him golfing, snowboarding, cheering on his favorite Washington sports teams (Nationals and Capitals), or trying to relive his glory days on the lacrosse field.
