Joe Ragusa arrived in Louisville and Spectrum News 1 in October 2019.

Joe spends most of his days in Frankfort reporting on the inner workings of our state government. He believes everyone needs to be well informed about what their government is doing. Some of the most meaningful stories he has covered in his career surround health care. He likes to show viewers what lawmakers are doing about the price of prescription drugs and overall health care.

Joe comes to Kentucky after spending most of the last decade just over the Ohio River in southern Illinois. Growing up in the Chicagoland area, Joe got his start in broadcasting doing football games for his high school’s TV station.

When he's not covering politics, Joe enjoys going to concerts and comedy shows. If he's not eating at the capitol cafeteria, you'll most likely find him at Chick-Fil-A. He is still learning his way around the city, but so far really enjoys the Parklands.
