Justin McDuffie is a Multimedia Journalist for WVLT News.
He came to East Tennessee in August of 2018 after reporting in Central Georgia for three years.
Prior to his work in Central Georgia, Justin studied at Arizona State University graduating with a degree in Journalism from The Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
While completing his degree, Justin completed several internships including one with CBS News in New York City, and NBC News in Washington D.C.
Growing up as the son of an Army officer enabled Justin to travel and experience both Asian and European culture. Living around the world gave him a sense of curiosity and an interest in other people. Today he uses that curiosity and interest in others to share the stories of people in East Tennessee making a difference.
During his time as a reporter, Justin has covered a wide range of stories from severe storms to children overcoming rare diseases, as well as his favorite story where he interviewed Dolly Parton. He's also been chosen as a media witness for two executions.
In his free time Justin enjoys traveling the world, and spending time with his family and friends.
