Justyn Melrose took on the mantle of FOX8 morning web producer in July 2018.
Born in Tampa, Florida, but “from” Northampton, Massachusetts, he now calls Greensboro, N.C., his home.
After graduating from Guilford College, he joined on with RockinghamNow, a community newspaper, where he served Rockingham County as a news reporter for about 3 years.
In addition to writing breaking news and features for myFOX8.com, he is a federally-certified drone pilot and goes out into the field to capture video for on-air and online.
He has had multiple award-winning features published — though he is also proud of the stories he tells with friends through pen-and-paper roleplaying games.
