Justin Holbrock joined the NBC4 Sports team in October 2019 and is happy to be home in the Buckeye state. Prior to joining NBC4, Justin worked as a sports reporter and anchor at WRBL in Columbus, Georgia for two and a half years. While working in the “other” Columbus, Justin covered Auburn, Georgia and Alabama athletics. He also had the opportunity to cover some of the country’s biggest sporting events including the Masters, the 2018 College Football National Championship, the Iron Bowl, the 2018 MLS Cup and the 2018 SEC Championship.
Justin’s most memorable moment in the South came while covering the Auburn basketball team’s historic Final 4 run and the ensuing celebration on campus at Toomer’s Corner. During his time at WRBL, Justin anchored and produced “The Last Call,” a live, 30-minute sports show featuring the area’s biggest high school and collegiate athletes.
Justin graduated Summa Cum Laude from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University (Go Bobcats!) with a Bachelor of Science in Journalism and a minor in Political Science. He’s also a former host of “Gridiron Glory,” a live, Emmy-award winning show covering high school football in southeastern Ohio.
In his free time, Justin enjoys traveling to new places, watching sports, reading outside and catching the latest movies. Justin was born and raised in Monroe, Ohio and he’s excited to be back in the Buckeye state and be part of the Columbus community.
