Justin Runberg

I come from the tiny town of Balsam Lake, Wisconsin. I graduated in the spring of 2018 from the University of Wisconsin La Crosse with a Bachelors Degree in Communication Studies with an emphasis in Broadcast and Media, as well as a minor in Environmental Studies. I love meeting new people and learning through different experiences that my job offers. In my free time I enjoy most outdoor activities, especially fishing. I have yet to catch a "wall mounter"! 

Favorite Song: It's between You Save Me by Kenny Chesney and Runaway by Love and Theft.

Favorite Book: The Game of Thrones series.

If you could interview one person, living or deceased, who would that be? It would have to be FDR. He made a huge impact on the world we know today and had a life full of interesting events that made him who he was destined to be.

My favorite life motto comes from the wise words of Van wilder aka. Ryan Reynolds- Dont take life so seriously, youll never make it out alive. 

My favorite sports team and really the only sport I follow are the Minnesota Vikings in the NFL. 

My favorite food is really anything that swims! 

Although I may have many other talents, the one I never really aquired was being able to play an instrument. The one instrument I wish I could play/get better with is the piano. I think they have a really unique sound.

My favorite day at News 8 was when I was hired because at the time I had no idea how much fun was instore, as well as being able to work with many great coworkers and teachers in helping me become better in my career.
