Josh Blair has lived most of his life in Kenton County. From Edgewood Road to Orphanage Road, a few streets over to West Lakeside Ave, and for the past eight years in Erlanger, Josh’s roots are in this community. In 2001, Josh graduated from Beechwood High School, then completed a bachelor’s degree at Northern Kentucky University and a master’s degree at Ohio University. His family attended Blessed Sacrament Church.



Josh works as an adjunct professor of communication at NKU, Cincinnati State, and Xavier University. He is currently enrolled in the Deaf Studies Certificate program at Cincinnati State, where he is studying American Sign Language.

Josh previously worked as the Public Information Officer for the Department of Public Safety at Syracuse University and as a Customer Services Representative at Fidelity Investments. In college Josh was a valet at Walt’s Hitching Post. If you dined there between 2001 and 2003, he probably parked your car.
