Joe Cadotte is a two-time, national Edward R. Murrow award winning reporter with experience in public radio, commercial radio news, newspaper editing and television. He's lived in nine states and is the youngest of seven kids. He takes pleasure in knowing that his hometown of Duluth, Minnesota, is much colder than Anchorage in the winter. Joe has road trips in his blood, as he likes to say, "on three sides of his family." Now in Alaska, there are only five states he hasn't at least driven through. Joe talks a lot. He's very social and loves people in general. His non travel, non news passions include: playing guitar and singing, writing literature, watching horror movies, checking out "haunted" places and cooking. He considers himself an "amateur chef." His favorite news experience was tornado spotting for a legendary country music radio station in Wichita, Kansas. Joe has 27 nieces and nephews. He became a great uncle before turning 30. He has recently published his first horror story and is very proud of that.
