After a long winter there’s no better way to ‘think spring’ than experiencing Milwaukee baseball in the Arizona sunshine.
Justus joined the WEAU 13 News Sports Department in August of 2010.
Justus was born in North Dakota and moved to Green Bay when he was ten. This gives him the unique quality of being a Vikings fan at one time and a Packers fan.
Justus’ television career began in college at UW-Stevens Point, where he was the sports director at the student television station.
His experience in college helped him land a job as a sports photographer at WLUK in Green Bay. After two years at WLUK, Justus moved north and in front of the camera as a Sports Anchor/Reporter at WLUC in Marquette, MI.
After leaving Marquette, Justus returned to his hometown of Green Bay, where he worked as a Sports Reporter/Anchor at WGBA. In his career, he has covered several seasons of Packers football and events such as the PGA Championship, Brewers baseball and NCAA sports.
When not covering sports, you can usually find Justus out on the golf course, though for as much time as he spends hacking up fairways, you would think he’d be a much better golfer.
Justus is married to his beautiful wife Kara, and they both look forward to joining WEAU 13 News viewers on this annual fan-tastic spring training tour.

Enjoy your surroundings as Salt River Fields is surrounded by some of the most beautiful mountain views in all of baseball. Tonight we replay the day’s sports highlights during our Holiday Vacations’ farewell dinner at Monti’s Casa Vieja. Steeped in a tradition of Southwestern hospitality that dates back more than 130 years, the popular restaurant makes its home in an authentic adobe hacienda that’s an icon of Arizona history. B,D
