Josh Benson Education

Josh studied Journalism at the University of Colorado at Boulder and the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities. He remains a rabid Minnesota Vikings fan despite the fact they are rarely in the winner’s circle. He is a proud Minnesota ‘Gopher’, but spends much more time rooting for the FSU Seminoles after meeting his wife Tara.

Josh Benson Career

Josh has ‘moved up the street’ from his last job as Morning Anchor at WFOR-TV in Miami, Florida. He’s anchored newscasts at WFTV-TV in Orlando and at KVOA-TV in Tucson, Arizona. His first job was in between corn fields at KAAL-TV in Austin, Minnesota. He’s proud to say he lived across the street from the Spam Museum. Yes, there is a museum dedicated to the canned meat Spam.

While Josh stays busy with the news of the day, he also enjoys website design, programming and video production. He has a passion for missing person cases and founded FindJodi.com, a non-profit organization that seeks answers in the 1995 disappearance of KIMT-TV Morning Anchor Jodi Huisentruit.

He was fired from TV News back in 2013 (very unexpectedly). He claimed it was the best thing that’s ever happened to him. He thanked those who helped him make the decision. For more than a year he was able to live life at my speed, build my company and re-evaluate what is truly important. He got married to his best friend and sweet Canuck Tara Manis.

Things may get by me, but they most likely won’t get by her. My cooking got better. Our apartment has never been so clean. I launched the second start-up of my life…and shut it down like the first one. And yes, I lost money. But I took away things about the start-up culture that an MBA would have trouble teaching.

He  founded Joker Media, LLC in 2002, a website design and video production company that’s allowed him to learn design and programming while creating some websites and programs for some really great individuals, companies and organizations. Our slow and steady growth year to year has allowed for some explosive growth recently and we love the clients we work with and continue to attract.

He has a  fascination for missing person cases since his first job as a reporter in the early 2000s. He attached himself to the disappearance of Jodi Huisentruit, a missing anchor from Iowa. His  first News Director and I still investigate the case to this day and chronicle our findings along with our team
