Josh Skurnik came to KSAT 12 in March 2016 as a general assignments reporter from Edmonton, Alberta in Canada.
He immediately fell in love with the people in the Alamo City.
Josh also loves South Texas weather. Do you blame him? The temperature in Edmonton can dip to a frigid 40 degrees below zero in the winter!
His career has brought him across North America.
In Edmonton, he had stints as a freelance reporter for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and CTV. Before that, he worked as a mobile journalist for the now-defunct Sun News Network, Canada's equivalent of the Fox News Network. Josh covered Alberta in the legislative bureau, including the fall and resignation of the province's embattled premier.
Josh was an embedded campaign reporter for the British Columbia and Ontario elections, covering the candidates daily on the campaign trail. For the Ontario election he was on the trail for a month and a half, with only one day off!
His next stint was in Alberta, where he worked in a production house, where he wrote and edited a teen documentary series on Aboriginal youth from around the world called "U=US."
Josh got his start in news at the NBC affiliate in Waco, after graduating from the University of Missouri School of Journalism. He was also a member of the university's wrestling team.
Josh grew up in Kirkland, Washington, a suburb of Seattle, where he went to Juanita High School.
He enjoys hanging out with friends, going to the gym, visiting family, trying new foods and spending as much time outdoors as he can.
