Joe attended the Edward R. Murrow School of Communication at Washington State University and started his career as a general assignment reporter in Yakima in 1999. He later moved to San Antonio, Texas where he landed a job as a feature reporter. While there, he fell in love with barbeque and a co-worker named Jenny who later became his wife. In 2006, Joe and Jenny had opportunities to return to the Northwest, and with family and friends in the area, they jumped at the chance. Joe has been entertaining viewers as "JoeV" ever since.
