Josh Robinson wants to say “Hey y’all!” Josh grew up in Collierville, Tenn., with his parents, three little sisters and several dogs throughout the years. He graduated from Collierville High School, “Go Dragons!”, and then went to Harding University where he majored in Broadcast Journalism.

Josh worked at WBBJ in Jackson, Tenn., as a co-anchor for Good Morning West Tennessee and was a multimedia journalist. After three years of very early mornings, he wanted to grow his skills behind the camera. So, he worked for Bramblett Group, a PR and Marketing firm, as a videographer/editor.

Now, Josh is excited to be joining The Daily Refresh team here in Chattanooga! He wanted to come to Chattanooga because he heard amazing things about all of the outdoor activities, it’s closer to his family and he really want to dig into the stories that haven’t been told yet here in East Tennessee and surrounding areas!
