CURRENT EMPLOYMENT: WWLP TV-22 in Springfield, MA (2006-Present)

EDUCATION: B.A. Communication, Western New England University

CURRENT POSITION: Anchor / Reporter

EXPERIENCE: Seven years of both on-camera and behind the scenes production work. Now the weekend anchor and weekday nightside live reporter. Formerly the 4:30AM anchor and weekday morning live reporter. Previously was the Franklin County Bureau Chief. Matt is a multi-platform journalist who can anchor, report, produce, shoot, write, edit, publish to the web and leverage social media. His dynamic breaking news reporting could be seen during Watertown police shootout involving the Boston Bombing suspects, the rare Western Massachusetts tornado outbreak of June 1st 2011 and the devastating October snowstorm. His coverage of a civil rights controversy in the town of Orange, MA gained national press. As a student at South Hadley High School, Matt's editorial on bullying four years prior to the tragic suicide of Phoebe Prince also was covered nationally. Frank Lomonte of the Student Press Law Center called his work, "Journalism at it's best." Before he was on the air, Matt worked behind the scenes; assistant directing, tuning-in satellite and microwave signals, and operating studio camera.

ABOUT MATT: A passionate, detail oriented, self-starter committed to delivering accurate, fast and local breaking news.

NEWS PHILOSOPHY: "Life has taught me that you never learn anything from the sound of your own voice. Listen more than you talk. The role of a true journalist is never to have all the answers. It's being able to ask the probing questions to get those answers from somebody else."
