Joe Toohey Biography
Joe Toohey is an American News Anchor currently with FOX8 News Cleveland. He is probably best known for Meet the Press (1947) and NewsWatch (1989).
He attended John Carroll University from where he graduated with a degree in Communications. There, he also received the Tim Russert Fellowship, allowing him to jumpstart his career at the late Russert’s iconic news program.
Joe Toohey Meet The Press
Toohey was a producer for NBC’s “Meet the Press,” where he covered some of the biggest political stories and national headlines. There, he enjoyed the opportunity to produce interviews with major political and cultural figures — including past presidents, leading government officials, and traveling to rallies and debates to cover the current election cycle.
Some of his favorite assignments included producing Chuck Todd’s first sit down interview with Donald Trump on his private jet in Iowa, traveling to Nebraska and South Dakota to interview voters directly impacted by the Keystone XL pipeline, and also flying a drone over a field in southern Virginia for a story about abandoned presidential monuments.
After NBC, he decided to make the switch from behind the camera to being in front of it. In early 2016 Joe was hired as a reporter with FOX5 in New York City. Using his experience in political journalism from NBC, Joe became the station’s lead Political Reporter covering local and national elections (including the 2016 Republican National Convention here in Cleveland). While at FOX5 New York, Joe helped create, launch and anchor the station’s Noon newscast, aptly titled “The Noon.”
He’s thrilled to join the FOX8 Cleveland team as co-anchor for FOX 8 News at 7 p.m. alongside Elizabeth Noreika. He joined FOX 5 as a reporter in February 2016.
