Josh Phillipps is the entertainment news reporter for online web radio station Hitz 247, the host of a series of online educational videos and producer and host of a weekly Australian news podcast called The Aussie Update. Josh studied Film & TV production at the University of South Australia and began his career as a video producer and editor. This gave him the opportunity to work with the one and only Bear Grylls (Man vs. Wild), Paul Keating (former Australian Prime Minister), Sarah Murdoch (Australia's Next Top Model) and Grant Hackett (former Australian Olympic swimmer). He then made the bold decision to step in-front of the camera and enrol in TV Presenting at NIDA. It's there that he found his true calling and passion for presenting and hosting. Josh has also completed advanced TV Hosting workshops in Los Angeles with E!'s former head of casting and was given the opportunity to interview former child star Susan Olsen (Cindy Brady, The Brady Bunch).
