Justin has been a part of the News 2 team for more than 11 years! You can watch his forecast on News 2 This Morning from 4 a.m. to 7 a.m., during Good Morning America, and on News 2 at 11 a.m.
Justin loves having fun on the air, but knows that his most important job is keeping you safe during active weather. He won a Regional Emmy for his work during the 2008 tornado outbreak, was awarded multiple AP Awards following Tennessee’s historic May 2010 floods, and has been twice-voted one of Nashville’s best meteorologists in The Tennessean’s “Toast of Music City” contest. Justin earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology at Penn State in 2003, where he helped forecast for The New York Times and taught an introductory meteorology course. His interest in the weather was sparked by living with hurricanes in Louisiana in the 1980s and blizzards in Pennsylvania during the 1990s.
Justin has visited hundreds of local schools over the years to educate students and teachers about weather safety. Away from work, he has volunteered for Big Brothers Big Sisters since 2007. Justin is honored to help emcee News 2’s Ronald McDonald House of Nashville’s Calls for Kids telethon each spring. He also helps the Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee each winter by serving as their “cookie chairperson,” which he says is a delicious job.
Justin’s hobbies include reading, music, mountain biking, snow skiing, following the NFL and the NBA, and rooting for his alma mater. He and his wife welcomed a baby boy to their family in March of 2015 and haven’t stopped running around since!
