At a young age, John was fascinated with sports broadcasting. His dream job was to be the play-by-play announcer for the New York Rangers. Over time, that interest morphed into journalism. His career began at KPAX in Missoula, Montana, serving as news reporter and for a time, sports anchor. After four years, John moved to Spokane, Washington. There, he worked for KXLY and KREM as a news reporter and anchor. Then, it was on to San Diego, California where he reported for KSWB. John spent nearly five years at KING in Seattle, Washington, working with some of the most talented photographers and journalists in the profession. A compilation of his stories in 2015 earned an Emmy award as best reporter in the Northwest region. Currently, John lives in Las Vegas, Nevada as morning co-anchor for KLAS. He won another Emmy in 2017 for the initial coverage of the October 1 shooting on the Las Vegas Strip.
