Josh Einiger  | ABC7 WABC News Team
Josh Einiger joined WABC-TV as a reporter in September 2009. Every night, he covers the big story on the station's top-rated Eyewitness News at 11.

While at WABC, Josh has reported from the scene of the world's biggest news events, including mass shootings in Parkland and Orlando, FL and hurricanes in Florida, Texas and Puerto Rico. He covered the catastrophic condo collapse in Surfside, FL, the concert bombing in Manchester, England and the inferno at Notre Dame in Paris. He won an Emmy award for his coverage of the Trump Administration's "family separation" policy at the Mexico border, and he spent a week chronicling the refugee crisis on the Ukraine-Poland border. Josh has reported extensively on national politics from Washington, and he was on the scene for the capture of the Boston Marathon bomber.

Josh's stories from the front lines of New York's 2020 Coronavirus lockdown contributed to the station's national Edward R. Murrow award for its pandemic coverage. Josh has also won Emmy awards for his role covering a terror attack on a Manhattan bike path and the fatal crash of a helicopter in the East River. He chronicled the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, as well as countless other severe weather events in the New York area and beyond. As WABC's Long Island Reporter, he led the station's coverage of the search for a serial killer near Gilgo Beach.

Before joining WABC, Josh worked as a reporter in Philadelphia, Orlando and Albany, and freelanced as a national correspondent for Fox News affiliates. He got his start behind the scenes as a field producer, photographer and assignment editor in New York and Philadelphia.

Born and raised in Manhattan, Josh grew up watching Eyewitness News; joining the team he idolized from childhood has been the honor of his life. He's a 2000 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, where he majored in political science and history. In his spare time, you might find him cycling around Central Park, or boarding a plane to explore the world.
