Josh James

Reporter / Webmaster

Josh James fell in love with college radio at Western Kentucky University's student station, New Rock 92 (now Revolution 91.7). After working as a DJ and program director, he knew he wanted to come home to Lexington and try his hand in public radio.

In 2003, he joined WUKY as a part-time reporter and weekend announcer. He's earned numerous awards from the Kentucky Associated Press, including Best Radio Reporter in 2014 and 2016. An avid music fan raised on British Invasion rock, Josh also enjoyed a stint in the programming department, hosting WUKY's Rock & Roots from 11-1 pm weekdays. He currently serves as a station reporter and webmaster.

When he's off duty, Josh enjoys songwriting, philosophy, and watching bad horror movies with his cat, Rufus.
