Reporter Justin Campbell joined the News 6 team in December 2018. As a respected journalist from WVLA in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Justin loves the thrill of breaking news stories, but also loves a great human interest story, which makes him a well-rounded asset to the News 6 team. Justin has covered everything from the police shooting death of Alton Sterling that sparked riots to multiple Mardi Gras parades on Bourbon Street.
The Houston native attended Arizona State University, where he double majored in Economics and Environmental Sustainability. He only fell into journalism after a college girlfriend took him to one of her journalism classes. Since then, Justin has worked in Charlotte, Montana, and Baton Rouge before coming to the Magic City.
“I have a lot of family members in Florida that moved here from Jamaica, so coming to Orlando feels like coming home,” he said. “I’m actually a dual citizen of Jamaica and spent a lot of time there as a child.”
Justin loves to spend time outside. You can likely find him at the dog park with his German Shepherd/Chow Mix, Beau. He also enjoys finding the newest coffee spots around town to read a good book and sip on lattes. He is also a big football fan. Justin has traveled to ten countries, including Norway, Germany and Ecuador.
Odd fun fact about Justin: He can ride a unicycle.
