…and it’s spelled Josh Holliday not Josh Holiday, though I do enjoy vacations. And yes, it’s my real name, from birth.

Josh Holliday is a versatile radio and on-camera host. On the audio side, he specializes in Personality Radio. He’s performed in pretty much every radio category including commercial, public, satellite, community, and podcast. Just give him a microphone and he’s happy. He’s also quite comfortable in front of a camera, hosting with a combination of curiosity, quirk, and dry wit. In addition to hosting, he’s a multi-award winning copywriter, and master of creating content.  See: Steve and Tawny.
