Josh was the main face of covering a very different 2021 award season on talkRADIO.
Here he covered the buildup and post reaction of all the major ceremonies including the Golden Globes, SAG Awards, BAFTAs and the Oscars and was on air on a variety of shows across the network, broadcasting with the likes of Julia Hartley-Brewer, Mike Graham, Patrick Christys, Cristo Foufas and James Max.
As part of his role as Entertainment Correspondent on talkRADIO, Josh is known for providing coverage of breaking showbiz stories.
This will be Josh’s 4th consecutive Award Season covered on the station and this year, things are looking slightly different than usual as Josh and Julia comb over the fine details. Josh is not afraid to chew fat over the facts and hold his own with well established broadcasters on air!
And with the rest of award season still to come, combined with more exclusive interviews lined up … 2021 is firmly off to a positive start!
As entertainment correspondent for talkRADIO, Josh uses the skills in his toolbox to bring a unique perspective to every assignment, particularly in terms of coverage for any significant worldwide event.
Even though he is best known for his work throughout award season, he was lucky enough to play a part in the groundbreaking US Election 2020 coverage on talkRADIO. On Election Day he appeared on the flagship show on the Network, ‘The Independent Republic of Mike Graham’ in the buildup to the election.
Then on election night, coverage began at 10pm with Cristo Foufas and Josh went on air once again with Cristo to give analysis on the Showbiz side of the election, proving that when it comes to major coverage of big events, especially when it relates to showbiz in any way, Josh is always on hand as the go-to guy to provide expert analysis.
Rebecca – directed by Ben Wheatley is one of the big Netflix movie releases of 2020. Starring the likes of Lily James, Armie Hammer and Kristin Scott Thomas, the film has provided substantial distraction away from the day to day pressures of lockdown.
Lily James pulled out of several high profile media interviews news after the scandal with fellow actor Dominic West, including Graham Norton and The Today Show. However Josh still managed to bag an exclusive virtual interview with her for talkRADIO as well as several of the other big name stars of the film.
Following Taylor Swifts claims that she will re-record her first 5 albums after November 2020 – following Scooter Braun’s purchase of Big Machine Records from Taylor’s former mentor Scott Borchetta – Josh reports on the music industry feud for BBC Outside Source which aired on the BBC News Channel in the UK and around the world.
He was later invited back on the programme to reports on the messaging behind Taylor Swift’s huge political statement the she made as she accepted the Video of The Year Award the MTV Video Music Awards 2019 (VMAs)
Josh was very proud to be the face of talkRADIO’s first ever online Multi-platform Showbiz column; The Showbiz Insider… starting off with Zac Efron & Lily Collins and continuing with George Clooney!
It’s an exciting project for Josh to launch, as he gets to show all sides of his personality. He injects wit and humour in writing, presents exclusive video coverage from some of the biggest red carpets and his on air item on The Late Late Early Early Show with Paul Ross received a refreshed sound. As his column develops he will be looking to do even more exclusive interviews.
