JJ joined KMOV in 2012 after a few years working with media start-ups.
He covered the Missouri Tigers football and basketball teams for KMOV prior to joining full time, and was the Cardinal beat writer for KMOV.com and the BaseballStL app from 2013-2018.
Since then he has transitioned into podcast and video production.
Originally from outside Chicago, JJ has lived in Missouri since 2010- first in Columbia then in St. Louis.
He graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in journalism, and has spent most of his time in the Show Me State since. When not at the ballpark, he's exploring St. Louis' seemingly endless supplies of delicious food and great beer.
