Justin Bruce

You can wake up to Justin’s forecast each weekday on News 2 This Morning from 4 a.m. to 7 a.m., during Good Morning America from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., and on News 2 at 11 a.m. Justin has been a part of the News 2 team since 2004.  He and his wife happily welcomed a baby boy to their family in March of 2015.

Justin earned his meteorology degree at Penn State back in 2003. While there 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 and blizzards in Pennsylvania.

Justin loves having fun on the air, but knows that his most important job is keeping your family safe during active weather. He won a Regional Emmy for his work during a deadly tornado outbreak in 2008, and was awarded multiple AP Awards following Tennessee’s historic May 2010 floods. Justin has been voted as one of the best meteorologists in Nashville by the Tennessean’s “Toast of Music City” contest.

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.
