In this continuing series, I will look at those under 30 on news programs who are making an impression on local television.

Newcomer Adam Joseph,  27, is quickly making an impression at 6ABC.  Joseph, who normally does  the weather for "Action News" Saturday and Sunday mornings, is getting lots  of exposure filling in on "Action News" weeknights at 11 p.m. while regular  meteorologist Cecily Tynan is on maternity leave.  The Boston,  Massachusetts native graduated from Lyndon State College in Vermont and  worked as a meteorologist in two markets in West Virginia before arriving at  6ABC in 2005.

“I have been told many times over the years by  individuals in the field and professors in college that age and years of  experience will get you to the top.  I believed that until I got the  interview call from WPVI.  Landing on the number one station, in the  fourth largest market in the country shows that having drive and a passion  for your work can get you far, fast.  I love what I do and I love being  able to do it here.”

Joseph, who is single and lives in the city,  calls himself a “workout-a-holic.”  

“I live at the gym outside  of work.  I enjoy free weights, running, biking, hiking, swimming,  anything that challenges my mind and body.”

He also does work for cancer charities in honor of his grandmother who died of the disease, hoping to "raise awareness to help prevent a patient and a family, from going through what we went through."
