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.
Justin is originally from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida and graduated from the University of Florida (he promises to get along with all Georgia fans). In his free time, Justin enjoys traveling, playing guitar, cooking, and working out.
