John joined the FOX 7 Austin team in December of 2020. No stranger to early wake-up calls, John was most recently a morning anchor at ABC6 in Providence, Rhode Island. He was also the station’s lead political reporter, and had a popular food segment called "Rhode Island Eats." Prior to that, John was an anchor and reporter at WABI in Bangor, Maine.

John grew up in Connecticut and graduated from New York University with a degree in journalism. While in NYC, he worked behind the scenes at ABC’s Nightline and NBC’s TODAY.

John lives in Austin with his dog, Tico. A Northeasterner all his life, John is enjoying the change in scenery and climate, especially the Texas "winters." He loves live music and food, and welcomes any recommendations of bands and barbecue!

Oh…and John is a DIE-HARD Bon Jovi fan—he’s seen the band live more than 40 times!
