Justin McLennan

Justin McLennan is the morning anchor for 12 News Today and 12 News at 12.

He began working for 12 News as the Harrison, Doddridge and Ritchie County Reporter and as a Weekend Anchor in November 2018.

Justin is no stranger to the Mountain State, either. Prior to joining 12 News, he worked three years in Beckley and Bluefield at NBC affiliate, WVVA.

Justin was born in Virginia, but was raised in Montgomery, Alabama, where his passion for news and broadcasting began. He graduated in 2014 from Auburn University’s School of Communication and Journalism.

While attending Auburn University, Justin got his first taste of on-air experience with Auburn’s student-run news station, Eagle Eye TV.

Before graduating, Justin interned at WSFA 12 News, the NBC affiliate in Montgomery.

He has called West Virginia his home for several years now and he continues to look for new and unexplored corners of the state that never fail to captivate his interest.
