Mornings with Justin Roberts

Join Justin Roberts every morning on Mix 94.7 KMCH!

You might recognize Justin Roberts from his over 10 years forecasting weather and anchoring the morning news on CBS2 in Cedar Rapids or you might recognize his voice from his years behind a microphone at WMT.

When he’s not here at KMCH, Justin is the Director of Marketing and Communications at Ketelsen RV. He still serves as host and Master of Ceremonies for a number of events throughout Iowa.

Justin grew up near Fayette in Northeast Iowa and spent summers baling hay and helping on the family dairy farm. When he got old enough to start thinking about a job away from the farm, the broadcasting bug bit him. He started his on-air career working part time at AM 950 KOEL in Oelwein in 1999 and was hosting the morning show on KOEL as a senior in high school the morning of September 11, 2001.

Highlights of his TV and radio career include nine hours of continuous coverage of the deadly EF5 tornado that tore through Parkersburg and around-the-clock coverage of the historic Floods of ’08 and again in 2016. He’s interviewed newsmakers including CBS News’ Major Garret, Robert Wagner, Jerry Seinfeld, Drew Carey, Wayne Brady, and others.

He’s an avid Iowa Hawkeye and St. Louis Cardinals fan, a 4th degree Knight of Columbus, an accomplished pianist and organist. As a kid, Justin wanted to be a music teacher, airline pilot, or game show host if broadcasting didn’t work out.
