Joey Prechtl graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder in May of 2015. He studied Journalism with an emphasis in broadcast news. He grew up in Colorado Springs.

Throughout his time in college, he interned at KKTV 11 News in Colorado Springs, as well as CBS 4 in Denver. He also was an Anchor/Reporter for CU Boulder’s news show, NewsTeam Boulder. He also was a producer for the news show on the campus radio station, Radio 1190.

After college, Joey accepted a reporter position for our sister station in Northern Maine, WAGM. It was there where Joey got to pursue his dream job of journalism. He covered everything from school budget stories, sled dog races, and the brutal winter storms the area would go through.

After a little over a year and a half there, he is very excited to come back to Colorado and report in his home state. He loves to tell stories, and of course, he loves to meet all kinds of new people.

Joey’s hobbies include hiking, lifting weights, cooking, and watching sports. He is happy to call the Western Slope home now.
