Justin Walters is an Emmy-nominated Sports Anchor and Reporter for WPIX-11 News in New York. As a native New Yorker, he accomplished a career goal in the Winter of 2019 by joining the sports team in the No. 1 market. This platform allows him to cover some of the most storied sports franchises and display his passion for writing and storytelling. Along with those responsibilities, Justin is also a sideline reporter for CBS Sports. His contributions are for both college football and college basketball.
Over the past few years, Justin has provided in-depth coverage at Super Bowl 56 in Los Angeles for dozens of Nexstar stations across the country. Justin has also traveled out to Las Vegas to cover the NFL Draft and Florida for the Mets and Yankees spring training. Before joining WPIX-11 and CBS Sports, Justin was a Sports Director and Anchor for WRNN-TV/FiOS1 News in the Greater New York City area. There he covered all of the New York sports teams on the professional and high school level for three years.
Prior to those roles, Justin took a leap of faith in 2013 and moved to Jackson, TN for his first on-air job with WBBJ-TV. As Sports Director and Reporter, he covered everything from high school football to the Memphis Grizzlies as an MMJ. It was the experience he gained while working for NBC as an Affiliate Producer during the 2012 London Olympics and Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia that prepared him for WBBJ-TV.
Walters graduated from La Salle University with a Bachelor of Arts in Broadcast Journalism.
Justin is an active member of The National Association of Black Journalists, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc and the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
He aspires to inspire. His main goal is to break the glass ceiling and leave a footprint for other journalists to follow.
