Justyn Melrose is a native of both Florida and Massachusetts, but after more than a decade of Carolina barbecue and craft beer, he considers himself a naturalized North Carolinian.
After graduating from Guilford College, he joined on with RockinghamNow, a community newspaper, where he served Rockingham County as a news reporter.
He took on the mantle of FOX8 digital news producer in July 2018 and became the executive digital producer in May 2021.
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.
When he’s not at the station, you can likely find him brewing up stories for his next Dungeons & Dragons campaign or getting in line for the next big Marvel movie.
