Justin Walters joined the WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News Team in June of 2013. He previously worked as a production assistant and associate producer at Comcast Sportsnet in Philadelphia.
Originally from Mount Vernon, NY, Justin has always had a passion for news and sports. He believes that media is the industry for him and he is motivated to make a footprint in this business.
Justin graduated from La Salle University with a Bachelor of Arts in broadcast journalism. While in school, he was eager to learn everything in journalism from print to broadcast. This desire led him to obtain both an Executive Producer/Anchor position for a television show (Sportsline) and sports editor role for the school newspaper (The Collegian). In addition, Justin had successful internships with the Philadelphia Eagles, CSB Sports Network and WABC-TV in New York. Upon graduation, he was offered a dream opportunity to work for NBC as an affiliate producer during the 2012 London Olympics.
Justin is elated to call Jackson his new home and to cover West Tennessee.
In his spare time, he enjoys reading, watching movies, and spending time with family and friends. Oh yeah, and watching and playing sports!
Justin is a proud member of The National Association of Black Journalists and Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.
