Matt joined the News Team at WHBF in June 2021 as a multimedia journalist and reporter. He is originally from Canaan, Connecticut, and is excited to get to know the Midwest and the Quad Cities area.
Matt studied multimedia journalism at Keene State College in Keene, New Hampshire, and graduated with his Bachelor of Arts degree in May 2021. During his time studying journalism at Keene State, he won numerous national and department awards. He placed 3rd nationally for Television Sports Package in the 2020 Society for Collegiate Journalists (SCJ) awards and is a 2-time winner of Sports Reporter of the Year at Keene State. He entered college with an interest in sports broadcasting, but quickly grew to love TV news reporting upon taking classes about it.
For 3 out of his 4 years at Keene State, Matt anchored, reported, produced and wrote for the college’s two TV programs, KSC-TV, the college’s news update show, and Inside Owl Athletics, the college’s sports update show. Matt also broadcasted live sporting events all 4 of his years at Keene State and got to be on the call for the 2019 Little East Conference men’s basketball championship game.
Having family in Kansas City, Matt is an avid fan of the Kansas City Chiefs. But, having grown up in New England, Matt is also a fan of the Boston Celtics, Red Sox and Bruins. He has also been a huge NASCAR fan since he was 2 years old.
Matt looks forward to telling the stories of the Quad Cities communities and will always take a moment to talk if you see him out and about! If you have a story you want Matt to tell, he can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
