Justin Joseph joined KDVR/KWGN in 2010.

A native of Colorado and 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, Joseph moved to Cheyenne, Wyoming to begin his career in broadcasting at the local CBS affiliate. There, Joseph hosted a local talk show and won several awards for excellence in television reporting. In 2007 his love for reporting took him to 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.

Since joining KDVR, Joseph’s reporting has been featured on Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren, Shep Smith, Fox & Friends and on CNN.

Recently, Joseph’s reporting was credited for re-opening the Ashley Fallis death investigation leading to murder charges against her husband. In April 2015, Joseph’s work on the Fallis murder investigation was featured on CBS News’ 48 Hours.

Joseph has been nominated for several Emmy’s and in 2015 he earned the Colorado Broadcasters Association Award for Best Investigative Reporter and an Emmy Award for Continuing coverage on the Ashley Fallis Investigation.

    Star Wars opening weekend do’s and don’ts

Each theater chain has different rules for what […]

    DENVER — A last goodbye at her daughter’s coffin was a moment Olga Martin never prepared for.

    High security at Denver’s Parade of lights eases fears of onlookers

    DENVER — Even the dazzling lights can’t diminish the sorrow that hangs along with a flag at half-staff along the parade route. Importantly, children don’t notice. Their faces ignite as the parade rolls by. It’s a different time in the country, and here at home. A large contingent of police and security watch everything and parade goers notice. “We were just talking about it. We’re not really afraid but we were saying it is more of a risk now than […]

    Witness in armed bank robbery describes how she helped police

    LAKEWOOD, Colo. — This is one remarkable woman. She says the scream masks that you see the men wearing caused them difficulty seeing out of the side of their masks and so she does not believe that the men saw her when they ran by. Even so, this is a citizen we can all be proud of. “I was in bank making a deposit,” she describes just a normal day at the bank that went wrong. She couldn’t control what […]

I have cancer from agent orange and I suffer from PTSD from time to time,” Vigil said. And so each year, Veterans day takes on more meaning, but […]
