Josh Taylor Career
Taylor works at KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, as a Sports anchor. He came to the KDKA Sports team in 2015 as an anchor, reporter, and producer, following spending over two years as the weekend sports anchor at KHBS-KHOG in Fayetteville, Arkansas. While there, Josh was honored with two Associated Press awards for his work with the station’s coverage of Arkansas Razorback football.
Born in Pittsburgh and having raised in the Hill District, in the shadow of the Civic Arena, Josh first fell in love with sports during his boyhood years, having seen his first Penguins game at 7 years old. Upon graduating from Schenley High School, he went ahead to obtain his Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and Multimedia from Duquesne University.
Getting his first experience as a trainee journalist, Josh served as an anchor, reporter, and producer for a DUQ-TV News special that won a Telly Award in 2008. He has taken great pride in being a “Jack of all trades,” working on-air in TV and radio and having been a co-writer for six books — each of them about Pittsburgh sports.
In 2017, he commenced to carve out a small niche for himself as the host of the “Sunday Morning Grind” on KDKA-FM, 93.7 “The Fan.” He has also added broadcasting regional sports to his repertoire, doing color commentary and play-by-play for Duquesne men’s and women’s basketball games and high school football. During the same year, Josh was added to the Multimedia Department’s and Duquesne Journalism “Wall of Fame,” and was also recognized as one of the New Pittsburgh Courier’s “Men of Excellence.”
Josh also started to find his bearings as an emcee and public speaker, co-hosting the Courier’s Vann Media Awards Banquet alongside KDKA’s own Mikey Hood and presenting at the City League Hall of Fame induction ceremony in 2018. Apart from being a journalist, Josh has become increasingly active in community outreach and volunteer work, speaking and hosting events for different organizations. He has been part of the Young Professionals Board for Wesley Family Services since 2018 and has also worked near the Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf. In 2019, Josh was the host of WPSD’s “An Evening in Edgewood,” helping them raise funds for their on-campus Children’s Center. He has also taken part in “Dancing With the Pittsburgh Superstars” as both an emcee and dancer and also hosts the annual “Dancing With the Dukes” event at Duquesne to support his brothers of Gamma Phi Fraternity.
When not working, Josh may be seen on the diamond playing either 38-and-over softball or baseball, watching one of his favorite pastimes, professional wrestling — whether on TV or live in person, or loaded up with his family in their SUV on the road somewhere.
