Justin Joseph joined KDVR/KWGN in December of 2010.

He’s thrilled to be back in his hometown of Denver.

A graduate of the University of Denver Law School, Justin worked from 2000-2004 as a Senior Deputy District Attorney in Denver, under then District Attorney, Bill Ritter.

In 2005, Justin left practicing law behind and moved to Cheyenne, Wyoming to begin his career in broadcasting at the local CBS affiliate. There, he hosted a local talk show and earned several awards for excellence in television reporting. In 2007 his love for reporting took him through Omaha, Nebraska where he worked for the local NBC affiliate.

Why the change from law to reporting?

“I always thought I wanted to be a legal analyst for a network. But, the first day I covered breaking-news, I knew I could never be tied down to only covering legal stories. I’ve thought about coming back home to Denver every day since I left five years ago. I’m excited to tell stories for a community I know, a station I respect, and for people I’ve grown-up with."
