Justin Lum is a Murrow award-winning journalist and joined the FOX 10 team in January of 2019 after reporting for the CBS/NBC affiliated duopoly in Fresno, CA for nearly two years. Justin is proud of his Oakland roots, growing up in the Bay Area and graduating from San Francisco State University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism.
During his time in California’s central valley, Justin reported on major stories including the senseless murder of Newman Police Corporal Ronil Singh. Justin traveled to Napa Valley to cover the devastating Northern California wildfires in 2017. He also reported on the strong warning of Hurricane Lane approaching the Hawaiian islands for several station affiliates in August of 2018.
Before coming to Fresno, Justin got his start in TV news as a one-man band reporter and weekend sports anchor for KEPR in Pasco, WA. This hybrid role taught him how to enterprise his own story ideas consistently and showed him how much important hyper-local news/sports matters to communities.
Justin also cherishes his time behind the scenes as a producer for the Oakland Raiders Silver & Black Productions. In 2015, Justin and his team won an Emmy for the 30-minute special on Ray Guy’s induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Justin is happy to call Phoenix his new home. When he isn’t reporting, he’s spending quality time with his fiancé, cat and dog, most likely binge watching his favorite shows, working out or commissioning his fantasy football dynasty league.
