Julia Haskins joined the 13News Now family in May of 2022.
Originally from Fairfield, Connecticut, Julia recently graduated from Clemson where she worked as a sports reporter for the Clemson Insider during her junior and senior years. She also served as a FOX Sports intern remotely before working on site in Charlotte at the FS1 studio covering NASCAR. She’s learned from some of the best at FOX, including Joe Buck, Pam Oliver, and Shannon Spake.
Julia and her family are no strangers to Virginia sports. Her brother Bobby, now at the University of Southern California, played football at UVA. She’s been following Virginia football closely over the last four years so she’s especially excited to be working in the Commonwealth and covering the Hoos.
Some of Julia’s favorite sports memories are Clemson’s National Championship in the 2018-2019 season, and the 2019 ACC Championship between UVA and Clemson because, well, who doesn’t love a sibling rivalry? (Especially when your team wins, sorry Bobby!)
In her spare time, Julia enjoys grabbing dinner with friends, playing with her dog Bronco, who she claims is the most perfect golden retriever to walk the Earth, and spending time with her family, especially her Dad who performs live music with his guitar (an air guitar, that is).
Favorite snacks: popcorn, rice cakes, Cheez It’s, popcorn, M&Ms, bagel bites, popcorn and Tostitos. Did I say popcorn?
