Joe Bartels joined 8 News Now in October 2011 as a general assignment reporter.

Joe came from the windswept area of southeast New Mexico where he served as the Roswell Bureau Chief for KOB Eyewitness News 4 for more than two years. No, he didn't see any aliens. "I wouldn't admit to seeing anything even if I did, for fear I might be abducted," explained Bartels.

While in New Mexico, he covered many stories from devastating wildfires and the sentencing of an ax murderer, to a woman who kept her husband's body in a freezer for more than seven years to continue to collect his pension and Social Security income.

Joe was born in the suburbs outside of Chicago but relocated with his family to Arizona in the late 90's.

He attended high school in north Phoenix and graduated from Arizona State University. While at ASU, he trained at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication receiving his degree in broadcast journalism.

Joe reported for the school's award-winning Cronkite NewsWatch; a 30 minute newscast reported and produced completely by students.

Joe's friends and family live in Phoenix and he visits as much as he can. Joe is excited to explore everything Nevada has to offer. Joe enjoys watching movies, traveling and spending time with friends and family.
