Joe Little

Joe Little loves to tell stories. Some take viewers as far away as Pakistan. Some are contained inside a dumpster.

Joe is a television news reporter and the Director of Storytelling at NBC 7 in San Diego. He shoots, writes, and edits his own stories.

His mantra: "If your ship doesn't come in, swim out to it." It served him well as he moved across the country as a television news reporter and anchor in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and California.

Joe’s coverage of the 9/11 attacks is among his greatest accomplishments.  He was four miles away from Shanksville, Pennsylvania when United Flight 93 crashed.  Joe was one of the first reporters on the scene.  His accounts are included in a book called Covering Catastrophe: Broadcast Journalists Report on 9/11.

Joe received his masters from Syracuse University in 1999.  However, he credits George Mason University with building a strong foundation for his career.  In 1998, he earned his BA in Speech Communication.  While at Mason, Joe was a proud member of the Men's Basketball Team (Career Totals: 2 points, 3 rebounds).  In 2010, the Mason Department of Communication and the College of Humanities & Social Sciences named him the Alumnus of the Year.

The father of two amazing sons is married to fellow NBC 7 Reporter Audra Stafford.
