    I joined the FOX 5 team in September of 2012 as the start of a budding news and weather team. Weather has been my passion from the age of 5 when I witnessed a tornado touch down not far from my home in Colorado Springs. Since then, I have always been fascinated with forecasting, weather patterns, and especially extreme weather, and understanding why it happens.

    I was born and raised here in Springfield, Missouri and have always loved the Ozarks. In 2014 I graduated with a degree in Broadcast Journalism from Missouri State University, and started with Fox 5 KRBK as an overnight Master Control Operator. It wasn’t long before I was able to transition into the News Department, where I have been working full-time since 2015.

    I am originally from Iowa City, IA, but moved to Springfield chasing love. My girlfriend at the time, who is now my wife, is from here. As crazy as it sounds to me, I’ve now been here for eleven years. I graduated from the University of Iowa, and moved to New York after that to intern for the Late Show with David Letterman where I made copies, went on errands, and appeared in sketches, but mostly made copies and went on errands.

I’ve worked in radio at Power 96.5 now for 15 years! I host the morning show with my “work wife” Sarah.  I’ve been doing the morning show on Power 96.5 for 10 years.  “Fotsch and Sarah in the Morning” weekdays from 6-10am (we are also live on TV on Fox 5 from 7-8am)!  I also joined the Fox 5 team (on TV) in 2012. I do a segment on the nightly news called “What The Fotsch.” I also do promos, commercials, and other news stories for Fox 5. 

I’m from St. Louis but have lived in Springfield since 1998 and attended Missouri State.  I’m also the “the on-field guy” (or as some people like to call me “the idiot with the microphone”) at the Springfield Cardinal games at Hammons Field.  I just got engaged to my beautiful fiancé Emily.  She currently lives and works in Kansas City for a law firm downtown. She is a Royals fan and I’m a Cardinals fan… which makes for interesting baseball arguments… “West vs. East” of Missouri.
