Justin has been a part of the News 2 weather team since 2004. 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 his most important job is keeping you safe during active weather. He won a Regional Emmy for covering a 2008 tornado outbreak and multiple Associated Press Awards after Tennessee’s historic May 2010 floods. He’s 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 growing up 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 volunteers for Big Brothers Big Sisters and helps emcee the 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, and following the NFL. He lives in East Nashville with his lovely wife and son.
