Justin won two Southeast Regional Emmys in 2017, one for best sports reporter and the other for his work on FOX 5's high school football show, High 5 Sports.
Before joining FOX 5, Justin worked at FOX 11 in Green Bay, Wisconsin, where he covered a Super Bowl, two Final Fours and a wide range of other sports from curling to ice fishing. He won awards for sports reporting from the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association and the Associated Press. Prior to working in Green Bay, Justin was part of the team that launched WMBF News, the NBC affiliate in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
