Joe joined the CHEK News team in 2019 after spending nearly a decade as a reporter and anchor in B.C.

Since 2011 he’s been a fixture in the Vancouver Island news scene. His work in television and radio has earned him multiple regional and national broadcast awards.

In 2023, Joe became the ninth News Director at CHEK since the station went on the air in 1956.

Joe is incredibly proud of CHEK’s long history on Vancouver Island and the sacrifices CHEK staff made to keep the station on air. In 2009, employees helped purchase the station making CHEK North America’s first and only employee-owned television station.

As News Director, Joe is committed to building on CHEK’s past, ensuring the station continues to serve Vancouver Island with live, local news and programming seven days a week.

Joe loves living on Vancouver Island. He’s a strong supporter of various charity initiatives and is passionate about helping the community.

Outside of the newsroom Joe likes to spend time with his family. He enjoys supporting local restaurants, riding his bike, and cheering on the Philadelphia Flyers.
